SOS is Looking Forward to 2018 – 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 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 have launched a major fundraising campaign in 2018 and we ask for you or your business to consider joining us as a project sponsor.  SOS has signed a $60,000 contract with NPC Research of Portland to conduct this comprehensive study of Josephine County.  As of October 2018, here’s our progress on funding this project:

Who will you be joining as a Sponsor?  Local businesses such as Southern Oregon Sanitation, AllCare, and Evergreen Bank have already joined the project sponsor list as major donors.  As for our annual events such as Run For The Law, all net proceeds raised in 2018 from SOS special events will go towards completing this important project.

Please click here for instructions on providing a tax-deductible donation to this project.


Securing Our Safety is a non-profit 501(c)(3), citizen-led organization dedicated to the mission of providing for a secure, stable, and sustainable future for Josephine County, Oregon.
