On behalf of the NOBLE San Francisco Bay Area Chapter - Region VI, please join me in congratulating our very own Vice-President OPD Deputy Chief Danielle Outlaw on becoming the new Chief of Police for the City of Portland! Chief Outlaw has been a pillar of the community and has worked hard to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the public.
PORTLAND, OR – Mayor Ted Wheeler today announced that he has selected Danielle Outlaw to become the next Chief of the Portland Police Bureau. Outlaw is a 19-year veteran of the Oakland Police Department, where she served as a Deputy Chief since 2013. Outlaw will be formally introduced at a press conference on Thursday, August 10.
During the selection process, Mayor Wheeler emphasized the qualities he wants in a police chief, based upon the principles of President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The Mayor selected Outlaw based on her ability to provide leadership and supervision to over 950 sworn and 270 non-sworn employees, to work effectively with diverse communities, and to lead an organization committed to community policing, transparency and accountability. Wheeler and Outlaw have a shared dedication to improving relationships with Portland’s communities of color, increasing diversity and embracing equity.
“I have concrete goals for the Portland Police Bureau, all of them challenging to achieve. I need a partner. I need a leader. More than that, I need someone with a passion for this work who will be in it for the long haul,” said Wheeler. “Danielle Outlaw is that person.”
