Spokane Police Chief Craig Meidl has been named president-elect of the board of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC). He was elected to the leadership team of the 15-member executive board at the organization’s annual conference held May 20-23 at the Spokane Convention Center.
“We appreciate Chief Meidl’s leadership on behalf of all law enforcement across the state” said Steve Strachan, WASPC executive director. “He is well-respected by his fellow chiefs and sheriffs and will become president in 2020.”
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.
