Police consolidation explored in Glendale, Shorewood and Whitefish Bay

June 11, 2012

Elected bodies in Glendale, Shorewood and Whitefish Bay recently began preliminary talks in consolidating police services in the three communities.

The Glendale Common Council took the issue up Monday.

While a consolidated department could net savings in an environment of ongoing fiscal restraints, Glendale Mayor Jerry Tepper said the review process will be thorough.

"Some of this is territorial since we've all got to make sure that we're being taken care of," Tepper said. "We're not going to sacrifice that for money. We're being cautious and moving along carefully."

If preliminary talks do advance, City Administrator Richard Maslowski said public input would be taken into account.

"There would be a series of public hearings ... before anything is ever considered," Maslowski said.
