New poll: Should the smaller NEJC cities consolidate police services?


After six NEJC cities got together to talk about police services, collaboration and consolidation, some city officials have asked the question: “What next?”

Comments from city councils and police agencies have run the gamut from “let’s keep talking” to “this is a waste of time.” Nobody has come out as a champion of consolidating police departments in the cities ­– Mission, Roeland Park, Fairway, Westwood, Westwood Hills and Mission Woods ­– but there are advocates to continue to explore collaboration for cost savings and efficiencies.

What do you think?
