Portland Riot Cops List:

Portland's riot cops have been operating with anonymity for the most part until now. Yesterday local lawyer Alan Kessler outed the identities of Portland Police officers assigned to the bureau's Rapid Response Team with a tweet that includes the numbers they wore in an effort to keep their identities a secret. Kessler was also nice enough to respond to our request for a text version of the list on Twitter (https://twitter.com/alankesslr/status/1450959530544680962). The list he provided differs from the one in the images in that in some cases one list was missing names present on the other, so we did our best to combine both lists. These officers have been caught on camera countless times using excessive force against most peaceful Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists during civil rights protests. Those names and numbers are as follows:

57. Kerri Ottoman - Described a 2017 encounter with a homeless man as "He was biligerant [sic], verbally abusive calling me a fucking bitch, cunt, fat, to leave him the fuck alone... and on and on and on," which was probably because she admitted kicking him out of Fred Meyer 3 weeks earlier (https://www.portlandmercury.com/news/2017/03/01/18873292/a-homeless-man-was-killed-on-82nd-last-week).

Now he is back to being a homicide detective. Earlier this month he was assigned to the case of a NE Portland man that was shot dead. Despite eyewitnesses and the shooter staying at the scene this author has heard that the guy is still on the street (https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/2021/10/craig-wisdom-fatally-shot-while-walking-home-in-ne-portland-was-gentle-soul-girlfriend-says.html).

71.

We don't know why some fields are missing or redacted. We also don't who is responsible for the redactions. We deliberately chose not to include names of people listed as EMTs because we are hesitant to lump them into the same category as the police. If you know of any names missing from this list please post them in the comments section below. If you want to help improve the visibility of this page when people search the internet for the names of these officers please post a link to this page on your website and/or social media pages.

All versions of Cop.Photos appears to be offline at the moment.

rasw2021 Says:

Question- these cop.photo links aren't working. Is there a different way to view photos?

Sent Kessler a DM about all the misspellings on the original list and his response was:

"Lol, pigs cant even spell their own names" - Alan Kessler

We have finished updating this article with relevant snippets and links for each officer. In almost every case we found photos of them elsewhere on the internet.
