Provide Input on Law Enforcement Shared Services Study: Three Public Meetings This Month

Friday, August 18, 2017

Residents are urged to attend one of three upcoming public meetings to learn about and comment on the wide-ranging law enforcement shared services study that has been underway since early this year.

At each of the meetings, described below, representatives of the study team from the Center for Governmental Research (CGR) will update the community on the ongoing Tompkins County Law Enforcement Shared Services Study, and will invite members of the public to provide feedback on research results to date. All three meetings will include the same information and format:

Monday, August 28
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Tompkins County Public Library
BorgWarner Room
101 E. Green St., Ithaca

Wednesday, August 30
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Tompkins Cortland Community College
Forum, Room 163
170 North Street, Dryden

Thursday, August 31
6:00 - 8:00 pm
BOCES Smith School Gymnasium
555 Warren Road, Ithaca

The study, commissioned by Tompkins County and the City of Ithaca, along with the Villages of Cayuga Heights, Dryden, and Groton, evaluates how police services are currently provided within Tompkins County, and assesses how potential organizational changes could improve efficiency and effectiveness. CGR, and its partner Highland Planning, LLC, have been engaged in a comprehensive review of law enforcement operations in Tompkins County and the participating municipalities.

The process has included data gathering and analysis, and interviews with key staff in each of the participating law enforcement agencies, as well as significant community engagement via public meetings, surveys, and targeted focus group sessions.
