Public Safety Advisory Committee
Our mission is to make sure the people of Leyden have adequate police, fire, and emergency coverage to make sure everyone is safe.
The Leyden Public Safety Advisory Committee was formed on December 9, 2021 by the Selectboard and Town Moderator. It is composed of 7 members with one alternate.
Elizabeth Kidder, Chair
Candace Hope, Alternate
The Public Safety Advisory Committee is charged with the task of reviewing the Public Safety needs of Leyden in order to make recommendations to the Selectboard designed to ensure that Leyden has the most efficient and effectively run public safety services possible. These services include: police, fire, emergency medical, and emergency management. The Selectboard has to ensure that all public safety departments are fully staffed, trained, respected, functioning cooperatively, and that they operate in full compliance with all Massachusetts laws, regulations and procedures.
The Committee meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month and will be pursuing options for the provision of services and identifying grant opportunities to assist with this planning effort.
If you would like to contact any member of the Committee or submit comments or for consideration please send an email to Publicsafety@townofleyden.com.
The next meeting of this committee will be Wednesday, June 1st at 6:30pm. Please check the posted agenda for more information. We will be meeting at the Town Hall.
