Assessing the Impact of Merging the Police Departments of the Village of Angola and Town of Evans: Service and Cost Implications

CGR conducted a study in 2003 to evaluate whether or not it would be beneficial to merge the village and town police departments. The study concluded that annual savings of $140,000 per year could be achieved, depending on the final service agreement reached between the village and the town. The town and village subsequently received a $126,000 state grant to create a single police department in the town.
