BPI Oregon passed legislation mandating that every county establish a multidisciplinary team to address violence committed against persons with disabilities. These teams—comprising a district attorney; local, city, and county law enforcement; protective services; and others—are now meeting. In addition, all Portland Police Bureau officers have been trained in issues related to persons with disabilities. Finally, BPI Oregon now monitors the response of the Independent Police Review division to questions of unreasonable force used by police in responding to cases involving persons with disabilities.
