The department has been in the national spotlight because of the Mollie Olgin, Kristene Chapa shooting investigation.

Giles was hired as the Chief of Police in Orem, Utah where he worked for 22 years prior to moving to Portland.

His last day is July 18th. The city manager is responsible for hiring his replacement.
