Portland School Superintendent Ends School Resource Officer Program

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on June 05, 2020

As many cities across the country announce they are cutting police funding, Portland Public Schools announced they are cutting ties with Portland Police Bureau School’s Resource Program.

In Portland, schools will no longer have police officers patrolling their halls after Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero made the decision to sever ties with the Portland Police Program.

“The time is now. I am discontinuing the regular presence of School Resource Officers @PPSConnect. We need to re-examine our relationship with the PPB.”
– Tweet from Guadalupe Guerrero

The Portland School will be replacing the officers with “indirect student supports” such as counselors and social workers.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said he had already made the decision to cut the program prior to Guerrero’s announcement.

“What we are hearing loudly and clearly from the community is that they do not want this direct, physical, ongoing presence in the schools,”
– Portland Mayor Wheeler

Despite the Resource program ending Portland Police will still respond to any calls where they are needed to offer their services.
