The Portland Police Bureau teamed up with the FBI to create a Joint Terrorism Task Force in 2011.
As part of the agreement between the city and federal officials made to make that force, police must present an annual report to the city commissioners.
This year, the chief assigned criminal intelligence officers to work on an investigation with the force that happened outside of Portland's city limits after talking with the police commissioner, according to the report.
On Wednesday, Chief Mike Reese presented the report to the City Council.
The report is meant to document the involvement between police and the FBI, but some civil rights groups, including the ACLU, showed up Wednesday at City Hall angry about the lack of details in the report.
A representative for the ACLU said the report lacks the number and types of investigations the two groups worked together on this past year.
The chief says that he briefs the mayor, who is also the police commissioner, on the cases that involve the FBI. Some details were left out of the report to keep the integrity of the investigations.
The report says that the police chief, assistant chief in charge of investigations, the lieutenant of the Police Bureau's Criminal Intelligence Unit and two of the unit's officers have been granted "Secret" clearance by the FBI. That's a step down from Top Secret clearance, which would allow officers unescorted access to FBI offices or to informants' information.
The Portland City Council accepted the report in a 3-2 vote, but several commissioners voiced concern about the lack of information.
Last year, Commissioner Amanda Fritz said she expected more details in this year's report. In Wednesday's meeting, she also expressed that she wanted more details in the report.
