Abstract: THE SCOPE OF THIS REPORT WAS EXPANDED FROM THE NARROW FIELD OF THE TITLE TO INCLUDE THE QUESTION OF POLICE SERVICES IN OTHER SMALL MAINE TOWNS WITH SEASONAL VARIATIONS IN POPULATION. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE TOWNS WANT QUICK SOLUTIONS THAT ARE NOT ALWAYS CONSISTENT WITH SOUND, LONG-RANGE PLANNING. ONE SUGGESTION IS TO IMPLEMENT A TWO-TIER (STATE AND SUBSTATE) POLICE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AS OPPOSED TO THE TRADITIONAL THREE TIER (STATE, COUNTY, AND MUNICIPAL) STRUCTURE. THE APPENDIX CONTAINS A REPORT ON MUNICIPAL GOAL-SETTING.
