Praying for Portland Police.

A (pointed?) message from the Irvington Covenant Church this holiday season:

For some thoughts from Portlanders who follow policing in our city closely, please visit Rose City Copwatch; on youtube, an interview with Kristian Williams, who writes about the history, theory, and practice of policing (I’m reading one of his books right now); and Rev. Chuck Currie’s response to the recent promotion of Leo Besner to the rank of sergeant in the Portland Police Bureau.

Also, the Albina Ministerial Alliance has advocated strongly, again and again, for police accountability in Portland. In November, the Alliance called for reforms in policing. Rev. T. Allen Bethel of the Maranatha Church stated, “We do not want any criminal element in our community held unaccountable,” including “citizens employed by the police bureau.”
