County Commissioner Shane Eaton has been appointed to the International Public Safety Association’s new 30-member Advisory Committee.

This group will provide strategic guidance and hands-on support to the IPSA's Board of Directors through 31 December 2023.

“We're thrilled about this committee's international and diverse professional backgrounds which is more reflective of the makeup of our 7,000 members,” a press release from IPSA stated.

The International Public Safety Association was established in July 2014 as a 501(c)3 non-profit. Its vision is for a stronger, more integrated public safety community capable of an effective joint response to all incidents.

IPSA represents all public safety disciplines: law enforcement, fire service, EMS, telecommunications, public works (water, sanitation, transportation), public health, hospitals, security, private sector, and emergency management.
