The Clackamas County Enhanced Law Enforcement District (ELED) was approved by voters in November 1994.

The ELED provides an improved level of patrol services in the unincorporated area of Clackamas County within the Metro urban growth boundary.

The ELED is large and segmented, encompassing diverse communities — each presenting its own particular needs, challenges and opportunities.

Cost of the ELED (FY 2022-23)

The permanent tax rate of $0.7198 per thousand assessed value is used to assess taxes on properties lying within District boundaries.

The ELED projected tax revenue for FY2022-23 is $8,107,422, which represents a $226,982 increase (or 2.90%) from the 2021-22 fiscal year’s budgeted tax collection revenue of $7,880,440. Additional revenue sources totaling $140,619 raise the total FY2022-23 proposed ELED operating budget to $8,248,041
