Legislature Moves Forward with Law Enforcement Shared Services Study

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

The Legislature approved the steps necessary to proceed with a Law Enforcement Shared Services Study. By a vote of 11-3, Legislators approved a resolution formally accepting a $50,000 grant award through the New York State Municipal Restructuring Fund and selected the Center for Governmental Research (CGR), of Rochester, NY, to undertake the study. The measure also allocates $10,000 from the Contingent Fund and incorporates an expected $10,000 contribution from the City of Ithaca to underwrite an expected total study cost of $70,000. (Legislators Leslyn McBean-Clairborne, Carol Chock, and Mike Sigler voted no.)

CGR was the recommended choice of a 14-member intermunicipal Steering Committee made up of County, City, and village officials. CGR is the same consulting firm as was recently selected by the Legislature to conduct a criminal justice and jail population trend analysis for the Tompkins County Jail.
