WEIGH IN ON
2021 SESSION BILLS: Hb 2931/2932
HOUSE BILL 2931:
Mandatory Medical Exams
Background: HB 2931 requires an officer to ensure that anyone they arrest receives a medical examination, even if they refuse medical attention. This may violate arrestees' civil rights and places officers in a legally questionable position. If HB 2932 passes as well, an officer that compels the examination may appear by name on a "use of force" database. ORCOPS recommends a NO vote.
HOUSE BILL 2932:
"Use of Force" Database
Background: HB 2932 establishes a database of all "use of force" incidents or threats of force (undefined), publicly searchable by officer. This would include numerous scenarios where an officer is acting within policy as well as threats or implications of force that are part of a de-escalation strategy. ORCOPS recommends a NO vote.
SUBMIT FEEDBACK NOW!
Fill out the form below to weigh in to the Judiciary Committee opposing HB 2931 and HB 2932! Keep in mind that whatever you send may become a public record. You do not have to use your full name. If you would like a response from your officials, an accurate e-mail address is necessary.
NOTE: Even if you don't want to give your full name, please do NOT pretend to be someone else. It diminishes the impact of other e-mails.
Make sure all fields are filled out!
Personalize your message. Let your officials know who you are, where you're from, and why you are concerned.
Be polite. Your elected officials will be much more impressed with a reasoned message than a rude one.
Don't worry if you're not an expert on details... neither are many of the Legislators! They hear from experts all day long, but your voice means much more as a constituent.

Call their office
Your elected officials actually do like to hear from real constituents like you. Unlike Congressional offices in Washington DC, your State Legislators in Salem might actually be the ones to pick up the phone!
Even if you talk with staff or leave a message, remember to be polite but firm. Be personal and describe why you think public employees shouldn't be cut out of the process.
