Cooperative Enforcement Planning
ODFW and OSP Partnership                  

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is the primary partner of the Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Division.
ODFW sets fish and wildlife resource management goals.  Then ODFW, with OSP involvement, develops regulations to achieve the management goals and objectives.
OSP assures compliance with the regulations to achieve resource management goals.


Cooperative Enforcement Planning
Cooperative enforcement planning is a tool to help ODFW and OSP work together to facilitate enforcement of resource management goals.
Local troopers meet yearly with local biologists to set enforcement priorities by species and to discuss concerns regarding social issues, seasons, areas, and local issues.
Troopers then develop tactical plans to address priority issues and gain desired voluntary compliance levels to protect resources and meet management goals.
The results of each tactical plan are quantified and discussed with the biologists. The compliance level obtained through the tactical plan is compared to the compliance level considered necessary to meet management goals.
If necessary, tactical plans are adjusted to make the best use of limited resources in manpower and equipment to achieve the goals.
