July 16, 2020
LACEY – Pullman Police Chief Gary Jenkins was re-elected to a Chief At-Large position on the board of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC) last week. Chief Jenkins will be part of the leadership team of the 14-member executive board, which was announced at the organization’s virtual general business June 23.
“Chief Jenkins has been involved with our statewide organization for many years, and his re-election as an executive board member reflects his great work and the respect our state’s Sheriffs and Chiefs have for him,” said Steve Strachan, WASPC executive director.
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 Tribal and 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.
