Who we are
The City Auditor's Independent Police Review division (IPR) and the nine-member Citizen Review Committee (CRC) were created in 2001 to help improve police accountability, promote higher standards of police services, and increase public confidence.
IPR has five primary responsibilities:
- Receive citizen complaints alleging misconduct by Portland police officers.
- Monitor investigations conducted by the Bureau’s Internal Affairs (IA) and conduct joint or independent investigations if necessary.
- Report on complaint and investigation activities and recommend policy changes to prevent future problems.
- Hire a qualified expert to review closed investigations of officer-involved shootings and in-custody deaths and report on policy and quality of investigation issues.
- Coordinate appeals filed by citizens and officers with the CRC and City Council.

CRC members are appointed by City Council to perform four primary functions:
- Gather community concerns about police services.
- Help the IPR Director develop policy recommendations to address patterns of problems with police services and conduct.
- Review and advise IPR and IA on the complaint handling process.
- Hear appeals from complainants and officers and publicly report its findings.
