Call Activity Dashboards display data related to public-initiated and deputy-initiated call activity. There is a separate dashboard for each of the Sheriff's Office's five service areas: unincorporated Clackamas County, Enhanced Law Enforcement District (ELED), and the Sheriff's Office contract cities of Estacada, Happy Valley, and Wilsonville. Call activity data is retrieved from TriTech Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) software. The dashboard data is updated at the beginning of each month and the geographical boundaries are updated annually in July.
