The Final Report Is In! Josephine County Law Enforcement: Where We Stand

LAW ENFORCEMENT:  WHERE WE STAND

After over two years of raising funds and doing project work to have an independent firm perform a full assessment of our local law enforcement and justice programs along with the past and current impact of reduced funding towards these programs in Josephine County, the SOS project “Law Enforcement: Where We Stand” was completed in November of 2019.  This project assessed all aspects of how reduced funding impacted (and continues to impact!) our local law enforcement and criminal justice programs in Josephine County whether operated by the State, County, or City.

“This independent study of the reduction of law enforcement funding in Josephine County is a real eye opener, even for those like me that have followed this challenge closely over the years. I think every resident of Josephine County should at least read the three page executive summary at the beginning of the report so that we’re all aware of the facts and to help us all work together to overcome these challenges in the near future.” – Jay Meredith, SOS Board Chair

SOS could use some volunteers to help guide the second phase of this project (the reporting and community outreach phase) and are also taking some final donations towards the outreach phase of the project.

SOS is Making Progress in 2018/2019 – Law Enforcement: Where We Stand

In 2017, Josephine County made great strides towards being more secure, stable, and sustainable.  Some temporary law enforcement funding measures were approved, the Grants Pass Treatment Center opened its doors to help people with opiate addictions, the Juvenile Justice center is reopening, and more. 

But now, SOS’ largest and most important project lies ahead in 2018-2019 and we could use your help.

The SOS project “Law Enforcement: Where We Stand” will assess all aspects of our local law enforcement and criminal justice programs in Josephine County whether operated by the State, County, or City.  While County Law Enforcement/Justice programs are in rebuilding mode over the next year, SOS can come alongside these programs to assist in planning for the future.

We launched a major fundraising campaign in 2018 and thanks to all the businesses and individuals that have supported SOS in this effort.  SOS signed a $60,000 contract with NPC Research of Portland to conduct this comprehensive study of Josephine County.  We are happy to announce that we reached full funding for this project in June of 2019!

We could use some volunteers to help guide the second phase of this project (the reporting and community outreach phase) and are also taking some final donations towards the outreach phase of the project.
