Chief Mike Marshman is retiring after 26 years of service at the Police Bureau and 28 years as a law enforcement officer.
Uehara will serve as the Interim Chief of Police until Chief Danielle Outlaw is sworn in as Chief of Police this Fall.
"As we prepare for Chief Danielle Outlaw, I will continue building on our relationships in the community, so that every Portlander knows the Portland Police Bureau exists to serve them with integrity, compassion, and respect," said Uehara.
Uehara was sworn in during a ceremony at City Hall by the City Auditor’s Office’s Community Outreach and Information Assistant Gayla Jennings.
Uehara is the 47th Chief of Police in Portland Police Bureau history and the first Asian/Pacific Islander-American to serve as the Chief of Police for the Portland Police Bureau.
