Public Safety Commission

What is the Public Safety Commission?
The Public Safety Commission is a group of seven at-large voting members and attempts to maintain non-voting liaisons from Police, Fire, School and the Youth community. They advise the City Council regarding public safety issues and serve as a clearinghouse and forum through which businesses, groups, neighborhoods, apartment complexes, and citizens voice their public safety concerns and ideas. Through City Council interaction and public education the Commission strives to promote and enhance public safety awareness to the citizens of University Place.
