Police Analysis Informational Report 

While serving as Interim Town Manager, Les White saw the need for a thorough analysis of the notion of contracting out police services. This report is linked here

On October 27, 2015 the Town released the Police Services Staff Report, an informational report on the in-house and outsourced police services.  The report was posted on the Town’s website and distributed to the community via the Town’s “What’s New” e-mail.  Since distribution of the report in late October, staff received ten community comments favorably acknowledging the Town’s in-house Police Department and messages from three community members asking questions or requesting additional information.  The community comments are available at Town Hall for review. This link contains the 37 questions received from community members and responses to each prepared under the direction of Les White, former Interim Town Manager.

If members of the community have questions, please submit them to Town Manager Laurel Prevetti at Manager@LosGatosCA.gov.
