Thirteen Orange County cities are collaborating on a study to evaluate operational cost and efficiency opportunities in the delivery of police services from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.  While the 13 cities acknowledge and appreciate that it is more cost effective to contract with the Sheriff’s Department rather than form their own police departments, it is nonetheless time to evaluate opportunities for greater efficiencies, share regional service costs and even consider sharing staff positions.
