Portland State University is one of three agencies, along with the Portland Police Bureau and the University of Oregon, working on a project funded by a grant from the National Institute of Justice, United States Department of Justice. The purpose of the grant is to develop and implement methods of measuring the performance of community policing. As the recipient of the grant, the Police Bureau has contracted with Portland State University, and also with the University of Oregon, to do some of the work for the grant. This PSU report of collected working papers was produced wider the contract between the Portland Police Bureau and Portland State University.

This report presents the work of the PSU research team in taking the lead, during Phase 2 of the project, in identifying methods of performance measurement. We are now in the later part of Phase 2 of the project and approaching Phase 3, the phase involving actual implementation of measurement methods. The lead now shifts to the other two agencies involved, the University of Oregon and the Police Bureau. The PSU team has done its best to start the NIJ project off well, and we now look forward to seeing the University of Oregon and· the Police Bureau build upon our work. The University of Oregon has the responsibility to create a performance assessment plan and the Police Bureau has the responsibility to implement that plan. The PSU team will resume having a lead responsibility during Phase 4 of the project. During Phase 4, PSU will analyze the data that have been collected and computerized during Phase 3.
