Public Safety Committee

The Public Safety Committee advises the Board of Directors on major policy-level matters related to public safety. The goals of the Committee are to improve the quality of life in the region by promoting public safety and justice through collaboration, information sharing, effective technology, and objective monitoring and assessment. The Public Safety Committee receives input from the Chiefs/Sheriff’s Management Committee. Recommendations of the Public Safety Committee are forwarded to the Board of Directors for action.  

The Public Safety Committee meetings are generally at 1 p.m. on the third Friday of the month.
