Senate Bill 111 Planning Authority
Use of Deadly Physical Force Response Plan
Senate Bill 111 (2007) required the creation of local, comprehensive protocols to address the use of deadly physical force by Law Enforcement during the performance of their duties. Marion County has previously developed and continues to promote an effective and comprehensive approach to these extremely important circumstances. Pursuant to SB111, we established a Planning Authority and developed a plan that meets specific criteria outlined in the law. These elements include: training policies, deadly force policies, mental health benefits, light duty requirements, outside investigation, District Attorney discretion policy and data collection.
As required by law, the Sheriff and District Attorney are designated as co-chairs of the Planning Authority for Marion County. The complete membership has been selected according to the Bill and includes:
Sheriff Joe Kast, Marion County Sheriff (co-chair)
DA Paige Clarkson, Marion County District Attorney (co-chair)
Don Frederickson, Marion County Citizen Member
Dep. Chris Bangs., Law Enforcement Union Member
Chief Trevor Womack, Police Chief Member
Lt. Cord Wood, Oregon State Police Member
The Response Plan was first approved by the Attorney General on July 3, 2008.
