Local Public Safety Coordinating Council (LPSCC)

LPSCC's intent is to create a continuum of sanctions and services for both juvenile and adult offenders that result in a seamless system that emphasizes the prevention of criminal activity and community safety.

Required membership on LPSCC includes the County Sheriff, County District Attorney, a State Court Judge, a Public Defender, Director of Community Corrections, a County Commissioner, Director of the local Juvenile Department, County Public Health Director, representatives of Oregon State Police, Oregon Youth Authority, City Government, as well as lay citizens.

Children of Incarcerated Parents Workgroup (CIP)

There is increasing evidence at both state and national levels that the current system for addressing the issues facing children whose parents are incarcerated is failing to meet their needs. The CIP Workgroup was created as an official subcommittee of the Local Public Safety Coordinating Council to continue developing the system in order to more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of these vulnerable children and their families and to identify ways to fund Parenting Inside Out classes in Clackamas County on a long-term basis.
