Commissioners and Sheriff Craig Roberts are seeking residents to serve for three-year terms on the Enhanced Law Enforcement Service District Citizen Advisory Board.
The eleven member advisory board represents the various geographic and demographic interests of the district. It assists the Sheriff with identifying public expectations for the district, recommending service priorities, and supporting the Sheriff’s Office outreach functions. The committee meets every two months.
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 to meet the increased demand of urban Clackamas County. It serves the residents in unincorporated Clackamas County within the Urban Growth Boundary (as it existed in 1995), as well as the city of Johnson City.
Interested individuals must live within the unincorporated area of Clackamas County and within the Enhanced Law Enforcement District. To find out if you live within the district, please call Sarah Comstock at 503-785-5020.
Application deadline is Nov. 7. For more information, contact Sarah Comstock at email@example.com or 503-785-5020.60951
