The Department of Commerce has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Title: Survey to Measure Effectiveness of Community-Oriented Policing for ESA Enforcement.
Form Number(s): None
OMB Approval Number: None
Type of Request:: Regular submission.
Burden Hours: 286
Number of Respondents: 757
Average Hours Per Response: 20 minutes for general citizen survey; 45 minutes for NOAA and state personnel; and 60 minutes for public officials, government managers, and key stakeholders.
Needs and Uses: Community-oriented policing (COP) promotes the use of various resources and policing-community partnerships for developing strategies to identify, analyze, and address community problems at their source. Recognizing the significant role non-traditional enforcement efforts will play in Endangered Species Act enforcement in the Northwest, a new measurement tool has been developed to ensure that the performance outcomes of these non-traditional enforcement (COP) efforts are effectively measured. Through this instrument, COP efforts can be evaluated for success and elements essential for achieving successful outcomes in future programs can be identified and quantified. Anadromous species enforcement will be the focus of the survey.
Affected Public: Individuals or households; state, local, or tribal government, Federal government.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
