EUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene Police Commission held a public forum Thursday night to get input on its anti-bias policing policy.
The Eugene Police Department drafted the policy in October.
It instructs officers not to use race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or any other protected class as a reason to make a traffic stop or detain someone.
The pilot policy goes into effect in June and lasts for a year.
Officers will use new reporting software to enter race and other demographic information, which will be reviewed after the pilot ends.
