Rainier Police Chief Ralph Painter

PORTLAND, Ore. — Memorial services for Rainier police Chief Ralph Painter are scheduled Friday afternoon at the University of Portland Chiles Center.

Painter was shot and killed last week in the small Columbia River town north of Portland after he responded to a report of an attempted car theft.

A memorial procession is scheduled to begin 10 a.m. at the Port of Longview in Washington state and proceed across the Lewis and Clark Bridge to Rainier to take Painter’s body to Portland on U.S. 30.

Hundreds of law enforcement officers and firefighters from across the country are expected to attend the services, set for 1 p.m.

A Kalama, Wash., man has been charged with aggravated murder in the Jan. 5 death.
