Guess Who's Central Precinct Officer of the Month for March?


It's Jason Walters — the officer who fatally shot 58-year-old Jackie Collins in the Hoyt Arboretum on March 22.

Detective Mary Wheat, a police spokeswoman, says Walters was named officer of the month in recognition of service to the residents of Southwest Portland. The award was given before Walters shot and killed Collins, who police say was approaching Walters at close range with a small razor knife and refused to drop the weapon.

Walters now is on paid administrative leave pending investigation. A Multnomah County grand jury is set to convene Friday to begin hearing testimony on the incident.

See tomorrow's print edition of WW for more on Walters and the shooting.
