Public safety

Public safety is one of the primary reasons that local government exists. Communities form to govern themselves, establish standards and laws, and determine how to best enforce those rules through a variety of services. Police departments protect the public and exist to provide whatever level of service the community deems appropriate. While there are best practices for various public safety philosophies, ultimately, the local community decides what level of service it desires and is willing to fund.

We approach reviews of public safety operations and staffing with this in mind. As we evaluate the level of service that is provided, we also look for indicators of satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the current standards and help identify solutions to provide a better fit for each community.
