Annotation: THIS STUDY ATTEMPTS TO DETERMINE THE PROS AND CONS OF CONSOLIDATION OF ALL POLICE AGENCIES IN SUMMIT COUNTY, COLORADO.
Abstract: THE STUDY SURVEYED EXISTING RESOURCES, ASSESSED EXISTING PROBLEMS, AND PROVIDED ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF DELIVERING POLICE SERVICES. THE LEGAL BASIS FOR CONSOLIDATION AND ATTEMPTS TO PROVIDE INSIGHTS INTO THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCCESSFUL LAW ENFORCEMENT CONSOLIDATION IN SUMMIT COUNTY ARE PRESENTED. REGARDING THE CONSOLIDATION ISSUE, THE STUDY FINDS THAT SUCH FACTORS AS VARYING LAW ENFORCEMENT PHILOSOPHIES, THE BACKGROUND OF A NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS IN THE EXAMINED SYSTEM, AND THE POLITICAL CLIMATE INDICATE THAT A FORCED POLICE CONSOLIDATION WOULD BE FRUITLESS AT THE TIME OF THIS STUDY. FURTHERMORE, THE FORMATION OF A SPECIALIZED LAW ENFORCEMENT STUDY COMMITTEE IS RECOMMENDED TO FURTHER ANALYZE THE CONDITIONS NOTED IN THIS REPORT. PARTICULAR ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE INCREASING COSTS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT SERVICES, THE RELATIVE LEVELS OF PROFESSIONALISM EXTANT, AND THE COUNTY'S NEED TO FIELD LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK, THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
