Ossining mulls consolidating services with county

The Town of Ossining is looking at the possibility of consolidating police services with the county in an effort to reduce expenses and maintain services.

County Executive Rob Astorino (R-Westchester) says if the proposal to have the county provide police services to Ossining goes forward, the taxpayers of the town will benefit.

"It's going to be the same officers from the same facility wearing a different patch on their uniforms," says Ossining Town Supervisor Catherine Borgia.

Under the plan, the Westchester County Police Department will provide the town both the supervisors and the dispatchers.

The contract with the county would cost Ossining $2.1 million, but would save more than $900,000 in police costs in the first year.
