PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland Police Bureau says it’s going to relax some standards for new recruits in an effort to fill a huge officer shortage. The bureau says it has 128 vacancies right now and is anticipating a large number of retirements in 2020.

millerjoan: affirmative action is dumbing down America.

douglas gray: they can hire anyone because they aren't allowed to enforce the law

User from WA: Let’s be real about this. They are relaxing prerequisites so that more minorities and immigrants can join the force. It’s just furthering the replacement of the white male demographic which is going on by Democrats across the country.

they should be sending them to law school, make them earn a degree in the laws they're supposed to be enforcing. should need more than a high school diploma or GED to be hired. Hairstylist go through more schooling.

It doesn’t really matter who they hire, Kate brown enacted the stand down law to all officers . when it comes to enforcing the law! All they are is meter maids at this point!

don't hire x military guys.. they are trained to kill... cops are trained to enforce the law NOT their power as police men to get away with murder
