Intermunicipal Sharing of Police Services Considered
Release Date: September 05, 2007

As the Town Board liaison to the Greenburgh Police Department’s Community Advisory Board, I met several weeks ago with Dobbs Ferry village and police officials to discuss the possibility of conducting a study on the benefits of sharing services between police departments.

The study would not cost Greenburgh taxpayers, as New York State has grant money available for this study. We think it is beneficial to conduct this study while grant money is available to pay for it.

A study previously done that looked at consolidating the police departments in Dobbs Ferry and in Irvington suggested the villages could each save over $1 million per year. We are hopeful this same taxpayer savings could be realized with the sharing of services with the Greenburgh Police Department.

The crime rate in Greenburgh is at its lowest point in recorded history. If sharing services could provide a cost savings to the entire town, as well as increase public safety, we need to explore this possibility.

I will continue to update you as we move forward. Please feel free to call (993-1544) or email with any questions or comments.
