The results are in! Happy Valley ranked 15th overall nation-wide within its population size category and secured the second position in the State of Oregon for the success of its National Night Out event last summer. This popular event aims to foster relationships among residents and promote community partnerships with police and other first responders. The City celebrated the designations at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

National Night Out particularly highlights the efforts of our City’s police department. Through a partnership with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), Happy Valley residents experience round-the-clock dedicated police services. These services are specifically provided through a contract with the CCSO and are funded entirely by a special Public Safety Levy, which is voted on by residents every five years. This funding mechanism emphasizes the community’s commitment to maintaining public safety and enables the Happy Valley Police Department to operate effectively.

The City would like to thank the following public safety partners, whose collaboration is vital to the event’s success. This includes:
Happy Valley Police, Clackamas County Sheriff, Marine Safety and Search and Rescue, Clackamas County K-9 and Fire Departments, American Medical Response, Clackamas Emergency Response Team (CERT), Clackamas Water Environment Services, Clackamas County Safe Communities, Trauma Intervention Program Northwest, Portland FBI.

We also want to acknowledge the tremendous efforts of our Parks and Recreation Team and Public Works Team. Your dedication and hard work are the backbone of this event’s success.
