Forecasting the Outcome of Police/Fire Consolidations

ICMA's resident public safety expert Leonard Matarese co-authored this 1991 report tackling the politically controversial subject of police and fire department consolidation by local governments. The report approaches the subject of consolidation from multiple angles, providing background on relevant key issues, developing an analytical and mathematical model for governments to use when considering whether consolidation is appropriate for their community and the results of a case study in Auburn, Alabama. An excellent resource for local government professionals interested in exploring the potential of police/fire consolidation for their municipality.
