An update to our story this week about an alleged assault by Portland Police Officer Michele Boer
Lt. Kelli Sheffer
, spokeswoman for the Police Bureau, was at a homicide scene
Tuesday afternoon and was unable to respond by press time to our questions about whether Boer may face discipline by the bureau.
Sheffer called back after press time to say that internal affairs will investigate
to determine whether Boer violated bureau policy.
"For us, it's standard procedure," Sheffer says. "We'll do it no matter what and make sure."
That results of the IA investigation will go to a commander for review. Before the alleged assault Sept. 19, Boer was a patrol officer at North Precinct, where the commander is Jim Ferraris
