Brunswick County Commissioner Pat Sykes has been appointed the Homeland Security Subcommittee Vice Chair for the NACo Justice and Public Safety Steering Committee, and a member of the NACo Immigration Reform Task Force and Military Services Committee.
Commissioner Sykes was previously named a member of the National Association of Counties (NACo) Justice and Public Safety Steering Committee, the Veterans Military Services Committee and the Immigration Reform Task Force in 2016.
The National Association of Counties (NACo) Justice and Public Safety Steering Committee covers matters pertaining to criminal justice and public safety systems, including criminal justice planning, law enforcement, courts, corrections, homeland security, community crime prevention, juvenile justice and delinquency prevention, emergency management, fire prevention and control, and civil disturbances.
The NACo Immigration Reform Task Force provides a forum for county officials from across the nation to discuss immigration and its impact on local governments. The Veterans and Military Services Committee engages NACo and its members to develop and highlight county best practices and policies to promote innovative programs, services and benefits for our nation’s military, veterans and their families.
“Committee participation at the national level is a serious commitment and responsibility,” said Roy Charles Brooks, NACo President. “We must continue working with governmental, nonprofit and industry partners to highlight the importance of local government. My goal is to build a committed leadership team for NACo, as NACo’s strength is in its members and their involvement in NACo’s committees.”
