Pending vacancy, Enhanced Law Enforcement District Advisory Committee

There will be a vacancy soon on the Enhanced Law Enforcement District Citizen Advisory Committee of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.

It represents the various geographic and demographic interests of the district and provides the sheriff with advice concerning the operational policies, service priorities and service levels within the district.  Now, it meets on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM on odd months at the Public Safety Training Center, 12700 SE 82nd Avenue in Clackamas.

The District was approved by voters in the November 1994 general election and became effective July 1, 1995. Its purpose is to increase the level of sheriff's patrols in the district to meet the increased demand of urban Clackamas County. It serves approximately 85,000 residents in the unincorporated areas of Clackamas County within the Urban Growth Boundary, and the city of Johnson City.

Taxpayers within the district pay an additional tax assessment, and receive additional patrol services. The amount of the assessment and the number of added patrol cars varies based on Oregon Ballot Measures which reduce assessments based on what other service districts the voters approve; for example, if a new Parks and Recreation assessment is approved, the ELED assessment is reduced.

The formal notice of vacancy will be posted at
