Public database of Oregon law enforcement disciplinary actions goes live

A bill passed by the state legislature required Oregon's law enforcement certification agency to publish a database of the disciplinary actions it takes against officers.

SALEM, Ore. — A database that will detail state investigations into Oregon law enforcement officers and any disciplinary action taken is now live, according to the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST).

The agency was required to create and publish such a database by a bill passed by the Oregon legislature during the 2020 Special Session, one of several police accountability bills.

Despite the newly-minted database, older cases are not logged on the site. Instead, DPSST said, a list of officers who were subject to professional standards prior to June 2020 and any ongoing investigations have been published in a separate list "for broader transparency."

Once new cases are added to the database, it will include the names of public safety officers subject to DPSST certification action, their employing agency, and a link to the investigation and final result — including a description of the facts that resulted in a denial, suspension, or revocation of law enforcement certifications.

"Today’s announcement is the latest step in Oregon’s ongoing efforts to strengthen trust between law enforcement and community," said DPSST director Eriks Gabliks. 

Gabliks said that his agency has worked with the Board on Public Safety Standards and Training (BPSST), over the past few years to improve transparency. The agency has also held several web sessions to address questions or concerns about training standards and use of force.

"The tragic death of George Floyd due to the actions of Minneapolis police officers has led to lots of discussions, both in Oregon and around the nation, regarding police training and accountability," DPSST said in a statement. "The actions of the Minneapolis police officers are inexcusable. While DPSST has always actively engaged with stakeholders, it was of the utmost importance for us to pause our work as we mourned the death of Mr. Floyd and listened to the questions and concerns being raised about policing in our state and nation."
