Public Safety and Crime Prevention Committee

 


Please Join Laurel Mayor Craig A. Moe in congratulating City Councilman Keith Sydnor on his appointment to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2018 Public Safety and Crime Prevention (PSCP) federal advocacy committee. This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving crime prevention, corrections, substance abuse, municipal fire policy, juvenile justice, disaster preparedness and relief, homeland security, domestic terrorism, court systems and gun control. The appointment was announced by NLC President Mark Stodola, Mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas.


 


As a committee member, Mr. Sydnor will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.


 


“Serving on an NLC committee is one of the most effective ways for a local official to advocate for their community in Washington,” said NLC President Stodola. “I am thrilled to have Keith join a team of local leaders from around the country working to craft our policy platform and to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.”


 


The leadership of this year’s committee will consist of Chair Sean Polster, councilmember, Warrenton, Virginia; and Vice Chairs Stephanie Gordon, councilmember, East Point, Georgia; and Harry Brown, mayor, Stephens, Arkansas.
