Obviously, we are all shocked by the turn of events, with being notified that Chief Marshman was put on administrative leave. This does not affect the way we do our job as the rank and file of the Portland Police Bureau; we will continue to serve our communities with the same dedication, compassion, and equity as always.
In the coming days and weeks as the investigation unfolds and information comes out, our focus and service to our communities remains steadfast.
Although we are disappointed, we also understand that the process in place is equally applied from the Chief to the newest recruit. We trust that we will see results and can move past this in a timely manner.
As the leadership of the PPA, I stand strong behind our members as we navigate through this unsettling chain of events.
Stay safe and we are here for you when you need us.
Daryl Turner, President
Portland Police Association
