OJD 2014-19 STRATEGIC PLAN - Court Security and Business Continuity

“Our courts are committed to providing safe and secure facilities that will ensure the availability of justice in Oregon’s communities. Emergencies, disasters, and accidents affecting court operations can occur at any time, usually without warning. Proper planning and a prompt response are essential to ensure continued court services and access to court records."

Strategically Critical

Implement the statewide security, emergency preparedness, and business continuity plans, and continue developing and testing circuit court and division plans
