Eugene Police Prepares for Protests

Eugene PoliceEUGENE, Ore. — Eugene Police Chief Pete Kerns says his department is making preparations for possible protests after the Michael Brown decision.

The department has requested that groups give advance notice of possible demonstrations, though they are not required to do so.

Kerns says EPD is very good at supporting protesters who want to express their feelings lawfully like they did at a recent candlelight vigil.

“There could be demonstrations of some measure, and so we’ve connected with leadership at the NAACP and LULAC to offer our assistance in the event they choose to bring a march together or a demonstration of any kind,” Kerns said.

Kerns said he also promised the groups that he would inform them if he learned of any threats against minorities from extremists.
