The COG programs "fall under the purview of the Public Safety Policy Committee which is comprised of elected officials and public safety directors and managers. They provide policy direction to committees, review and approve committee reports; develop policies that are directed to the COG Board of Directors for approval and resolution; and share areas of common concern on behalf of local governments. These policy committees recommend policy direction and action for COG staff and technical committees that will benefit local governments and their citizens."
