Police Advisory Board

About the Board


About the Board


Chief Bill Mercier formed the Board on his own initiative as a way to involve the community in campus policing. The first meeting of the Police Advisory Board was held on December 12, 1997. Currently the Police Advisory board is comprised of WSU students, faculty, staff and a WSU police representative.  Each year we open positions to students who are able to attend the monthly meetings and other members of the WSU campus community who are interested in serving on the board. 

Each member is responsible for reporting information regarding campus safety issues or events of interest from their areas or departments of Washington State University.  This exchange of information with the WSU police facilitates a forum in which concerns of the WSU community members can be discussed, information disseminated and assistance from the WSU Police can be obtained.  We address many concerns ranging from pedestrian safety, IT security to sexual assault and alcohol awareness.  The WSU Police Advisory board is also interested in assisting with campus educational programs regarding WSU Police and public safety. 


The Police Advisory Board meets the first Tuesday of each month during the academic year.  The current 2011-2012 meeting time as at 3:00pm in CUE 512.  Please contact us for the meeting place.  Each year this is subject to change.
