Chief Elwin to co-chair small agency association
Mill Creek Police Chief Greg Elwin was named co-chair of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC) Small Agency Committee. He will work to ensure that smaller cities, like Mill Creek, have their needs represented equally to that of large cities.
WASPC was founded in 1963 as a collaboration of law enforcement executives to enhance public safety. Its membership consists of executive and top management personnel from law enforcement agencies statewide. Its membership includes sheriffs, police chiefs, the Washington State Patrol, the Washington Department of Corrections, and representatives of a number of federal agencies.
“I’m delighted to have been chosen to co-chair this committee,” Elwin said. “Smaller police agencies represent the majority of departments statewide and it is important that we have the opportunity to have a voice in the training, legislation and organizational development that impacts our cities and counties. Participation in a statewide group like this one will help the MCPD provide better service to its community.”
The WASPC is the only association of its kind in the nation combining representatives from local, state, tribal and federal law enforcement into a single body, working toward a common goal.
