Chief Danielle Outlaw walks us down the road to reconciliation
After 20 years of service for Oakland’s Police Department, Danielle was sworn in as Portland’s 48th Chief of Police in 2018. With a background in sociology and business, she’s a bridge-builder and thoughtful listener who believes in the idea of “when we know better, we do better.” Her goal as Chief: inspire transformation and positive progression in 21st century policing via enhanced strategies here, and everywhere.
Chief Danielle Outlaw takes our hand and walks us down the road to reconciliation with her views on 21st century policing. Her Idea? To restore the humanity IN authority. That the Police and the community must have a trusted relationship and embrace commonalities or we will continue to remain at a crossroads. If we are to achieve a future state of working together instead of against one another we must accept that change does not always come in the way we expect it to appear.
