Community Safety In Eugene – Feedback Requested

Over the past 5 years, Eugene’s population has grown and so have our public safety needs. While many creative programs have been applied to this problem to maximize resources and meet community needs, the growing demand continues to outpace capacity causing critical gaps in community safety and services.

In the past 5 years:

  • Eugene 911 calls have increased 21%
  • Police and 911 staffing has remained flat
  • Average wait time has increased by 20 minutes
  • Police are unable to respond to 1 out of 3 calls due to lack of patrol resources

(Note: These are calls about non-life threatening situations)

Tell the City of Eugene what you think

The City is collecting input from community members through phone surveys, outreach at community events, and an online survey. Please take a few minutes to participate in the online survey. This information will be summarized and shared with the City Council as they consider and discuss community safety this fall. The information will also be shared on the City’s website where you can learn more about Community Safety in Eugene.
