This website was created to support the evaluation of law enforcement in Orleans County and the villages of Albion, Holley, Lyndonville and Medina.
CGR’s work on the project was completed in December 2017. There are three reports from different stages of the project.
All of the reports are available through the links above or on the Documents page. Future Activity to change law enforcement in Orleans County will be supported at the local level.
The project team, led by CGR, will conduct a baseline survey of existing Law Enforcement operations in Orleans County through a series of in-person interviews with key stakeholders, and data requests. Each agency will be engaged as a full participant the process.
CGR will present the gathered information to the Project Steering Committee in a written baseline report to be used as the basis for the discussion of options. Key findings will include efficiency opportunities, personnel interview suggestions and best practices from similar communities in and out of New York State. A working model will then be developed for use in public workshops to gain resident feedback. Implementation planning will begin after the feedback process.
The process is being overseen by the Project Steering Committee, with assistance from the Project Team, led by CGR, a nonprofit management consulting organization with expertise in government management, public finance and municipal consolidation processes. CGR will be working with partners AIOPX and Highland Planning. The Project Steering Committee includes members from each of the villages with police departments and the county government. The members will have a chance to review and comment on reports prior to public distribution. The baseline report, working models and implementation plan developed by CGR and the Project Team for the long-term sustainability of Orleans County Law Enforcement will be provided to the Orleans County Project Steering Committee and other key stakeholders with dates to be determined.
