End Profiling House Bill 2002 Just Passed Oregon State House 55-4!
Legislation to ban the practice of police profiling passed the Oregon House with bipartisan support!
Next up: a vote in the Senate and approval from Governor Kate Brown.
The bill bans law enforcement from using profiling as a tactic in Oregon, requires law enforcement agencies to collect data about profiling, and establishes a process for accepting and addressing profiling complaints.
We’re making real progress here in Oregon thanks to the hard work of partners like the Center for Intercultural Organizing, the Urban League of Portland, the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police and the Oregon Sheriffs Association.
