THE RAP SHEET is the official monthly publication of the Portland Police Association (PPA). THE RAP SHEET is the only publication of its kind that represents the interests of men and women working in law enforcement in Portland. Articles appearing do not necessarily represent the opinion of the PPA.

“This publication will be dedicated, therefore, to the principles of objective reporting and freedom of expression which we believe are both fundamental to the operation of a democratic organization and to the free society we are sworn to protect.”

James Fleming, former Rap Sheet editor December 1970, Vol 1, Issue
