I. Abstract

Community-oriented policing promotes the use of various resources and policing-community partnerships for developing strategies to identify, analyze, and address community law enforcement problems at their source. Recognizing the significant role non-traditional enforcement efforts play in Endangered Species Act (ESA) enforcement in the Northwest, the National Marine Fisheries Service proposes to conduct a survey to evaluate the success of its Office for Law Enforcement’s community-oriented policing program for ESA enforcement for anadromous species in the Pacific Northwest.
