Police Reform Underway
The Eugene City Council is assessing police reform measures following a year of national, state and local protests. Unfortunately, the Eugene Police Department is being painted with the same brush that is being applied nationally. At the same time, the Eugene Police Department is actually a very good forward leaning organization. That's not to say there is no room for improvement. However, as we move forward it will be important to apply reforms in a manner in which we don't render the organization ineffective in fulfilling its mission to "serve and protect our community."
