Portland Cop Watch PCW has been for 20 years keeping an eye, cameras and their legal trained eye on what the Portland police have been doing, and then sharing updates and reports in their quarterly newsletters.
Current issue #60 is available [only in print at this moment], at various locations (my favorite is the Red & Black cafe) and the current issue #60 is available by snail mail subscription (private) contact PCW for subscription.
Usually the latest issue goes "online a few months after the printed issue. These "Peoples Police Report" newsletters go out four times a year. August 22 was the latest day, and one of the days for new information from PCW to go out to subscribers and limited newsstands.

Recently in celebration of the 20 year mark - PCW has a webpage set with all 20 years (Issues 1- 60) of all the past Covers here:
PCW is reporting, covering meetings, talking with officials, video documenting and lobbying for police accountability - they hold trainings, they teach "your rights classes" and publish a quarterly newsletter The peoples Police Report .
They are open to new members and encourage everyone to watch the cops where ever they are and to allways remember the key words if ever approached by the police: "Am I being detained or am I free to go"
