BPSST Police Policy Committee Recognizes Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett (Photo) - 08/22/19

At its recent meeting, the Police Policy Committee of the Board on Public Safety Standards and Training (BPSST) recognized outgoing member Sheriff Pat Garrett of the Washington County for his four years of dedicated service on the Committee. 

Sheriff Garrett was presented with a certification of appreciation by BPSST Board Chair Patricia Patrick-Joling and Police Policy Committee Chair and Keizer Police Chief John Teague.

During Sheriff Garrett's four years on the Police Policy Committee, the group has been actively involved in a top-to-bottom review of the professional standards system used for law enforcement officer certification and a complete review and rebuild of the 16-week Basic Police Course used to train newly hired city, county, state, tribal and university law enforcement officers in Oregon. 

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "Sheriff Garrett's active participation on the Police Policy Committee was exemplary and the organization was sorry to see his second term on the Committee come to an end."  Oregon Revised Statute limits participation to two, two-year, terms for Policy Committee members.  Gabliks said "We join Board Chair Patrick-Joling, and Committee Chair Teague, in thanking Sheriff Garrett for his commitment and dedicated service."
