The President of the Portland Police Association Daryl Turner said on Sunday that the entire Portland Police Rapid Response Team quit because local elected officials “encouraged and enabled some of the violence” that Portland endured for more than 150 consecutive nights of riots following the death of George Floyd.

The entire Rapid Response Team, a unit within the Portland Police Bureau (PPB), voted unanimously to resign last Wednesday after a meeting with the police union following the criminal indictment of an officer for assault stemming from a riot in August 2020.

Officer Corey Budworth was on the Rapid Response Team, a group police officers that volunteer for the post, and are deployed to respond to riots, civil unrest, and demonstrations in Portland. Budworth was indicted and charged with one count of fourth degree assault, a misdemeanor, by Multnomah District Attorney Mike Schmidt’s office on Tuesday.
