Local Public Safety Coordinating Council (LPSCC)

The Douglas County Local Public Safety Coordinating Council (LPSCC) acts as an advisory body to the Board of Commissioners on public safety policy matters.
The Council meets the first Tuesday of every other month from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Senate Bill 1145, passed by the Legislature in 1995, requires every county in Oregon to convene a Local Public Safety Coordinating Council. Required membership is outlined in state statute under ORS. 423.560 LPSCC coordinates local criminal justice policy and planning, oversees Douglas County’s Justice Reinvestment Grant program and makes recommendations to the county Board of Commissioners regarding the use of state and county resources to supervise local offenders.

The Council brings together criminal justice leaders, service providers and other stakeholders to ensure cross-system collaboration and a cooperative approach to public safety policy and programs.

Douglas County’s LPSCC has a Housing Subcommittee and a Behavioral Health Subcommittee that also acts as the steering body for Douglas County’s Stepping Up Initiative and Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) efforts, both aimed at strengthening the local services continuum for justice-involved individuals with mental illness.

The Housing Subcommittee meets the second Wednesday of every month at noon. The Behavioral Health Subcommittee meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at noon.

ORS. 423.569 requires the board of commissioners in each county to provide the Criminal Justice Commission (CJC) with an annual summary of the program, service or budget changes made in response to the recommendations of their county LPSCC. CJC will use this information to gain a better understanding of how LPSCCs function throughout the state and assist in identifying best practices, innovative ideas and shared challenges. This will allow the CJC to improve their capacity to provide support to the LPSCCS pursuant to ORS 137.656.
