(Olympia) --- Montesano Police Chief Brett Vance has been named treasurer of the executive board of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC). He will serve in his new role until May 2020.
“The appointment of Chief Vance is indicative of the respect he has among chiefs and sheriffs throughout our state,” said Steve Strachan, WASPC executive director. “We are looking forward to him taking on a leadership position for policy and legislation regarding public safety as a member of our executive board.”
Grays Harbor Sheriff Rick Scott is also a member of the WASPC executive board.
WASPC was founded in 1963 and consists of executive and top management personnel from law enforcement agencies statewide. With more than 900 members it includes the 39 elected county sheriffs, and 240 police chiefs, as well as the Washington State Patrol, the Washington Department of Corrections, and representatives of several federal agencies.
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. WASPC's function is to provide specific materials and services to all law enforcement agencies in the state, members and non-members alike.
