Public Safety Advisory Committee - Tempe campus

The Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) serves in an advisory and consultative role and is responsible to the executive vice president, treasurer, and CFO. The mission of the PSAC is to make recommendations to assist the ASU Police Department (ASU PD) to be responsive to the needs of the campuses and local communities and to provide the university administration with a vehicle to receive regular input on issues surrounding crime abatement, law enforcement, public safety, and emergency preparedness. The PSAC receives comments and suggestions from the public at large, facilitates communication, provides advice, reviews complaints against the ASU PD or its staff, and makes recommendations accordingly to the executive vice president, treasurer, and CFO and/or the ASU Chief of Police. Employee and local community representatives are appointed by the executive vice president, treasurer, and CFO and student representatives are appointed by ASASU with the approval of the executive vice president, treasurer, and CFO.
