About the Study

The Project Steering Committee is seeking to study a countywide law enforcement service delivery model for the County of Orleans and Villages of Albion, Holley, Lyndonville and Medina. Orleans County has been awarded a Local Government Efficiency Grant from the New York State Department of State for the purpose of an evaluation of law enforcement efficiency and service delivery models to optimize service delivery and use of tax revenues. The objective of the project is to provide a restructured model resulting in cost‐effective consolidated police services across Orleans County including the jurisdictions of all four village stakeholders.

Orleans County, on the shores of Lake Ontario, is the second most northwest county in New York State. Covering an area of 817 square miles, it runs along the shoreline of Lake Ontario and is intersected in the south by the historic Erie Canal. Over 42,000 residents across 10 towns and 4 villages call Orleans County home.1
