Code Enforcement National Trend Report (Sample)

Last updated on 2018-11-02

Service Area Overview

Code Enforcement departments or professionals implement a jurisdiction's adopted ordinances, codes, and statutes pertaining to the equal observance and compliance of all residents in upholding standards of public health, safety, comfort, and enjoyment of public, shared, and neighborhood spaces. 

Influencing Factors Include

  • Demographics:  Issues of code enforcement may result from matters affecting quality of life within a neighborhood, corridor, or community.  The way a jurisdiction defines quality of life reflects citizen priorities, which may correlate with certain issues inherent to large or small populations, certain age demographics, and socioeconomic conditions.
  • Codes and Statutes:  Jurisdictional ordinances are adopted by locally elected bodies.  In some cases, state and federal laws may also apply or affect jurisdictional code enforcement.
