1/3 Charles Moose was the Portland Police Chief in a moment in history when war-on-crime policies were flooding communities across the country. Moose brought a different vision. He lived in the community he served.

I am saddened to learn about the passing of former Portland Police Chief Charles Moose. He was a strong proponent of community policing and ending homelessness, serving on the Multnomah County Community Action Commission when I was chair. My prayers are with his family.
