Benefits of consolidating police departments
In 2015, the department was given the title of a National Center for Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and the U. “We will continue to emphasize our commitment to public safety and to the community throughout the consolidation process.” George Southern University was listed in a 2017 report as one of the nation’s Top 100 Safest Colleges in America by the National Council for Home Safety and Security’s Safest Colleges in America.Its police department is also notably the first public safety department in Bulloch County to use both body cameras and in-car recording systems in its daily efforts.The situation highlights a broader issue countywide that members of law enforcement, local elected officials and grassroots advocates see: inefficiency.More than 100 disparate municipal police departments operate within the 745 square miles of Allegheny County.Early last month, just one week after the East Pittsburgh police force disbanded, the borough’s council president convened nine nearby municipalities to discuss regionalizing the police departments that dot the Mon Valley.

The new university will keep the name Georgia Southern University and will be led by GSU’s current president, Jaimie L. The police department consolidation will be led by Laura Mc Cullough, Georgia Southern’s chief of police and director of its Office of Public Safety.
“The early integration of University Police Departments will allow for upgraded equipment and aligned training standards,” says Mc Cullough.
Create a memorandum mainly stating the advantages and disadvantages of this consolidation for employees, the community, and the effectiveness of policing.
At the end, you will need to make a recommendation to your police chief as to whether this is a good idea or not, and why, stating reasons from your memorandum.
