Public Safety Committee Delivers Report To Councilors
Montrose, CO — Members of the Public Safety Citizen Advisory Committee (PSCAC) presented its final report regarding staffing and funding recommendations for the future of the Montrose Police Department to the City Council Tuesday evening. The report includes several recommendations to decrease crime and improve law enforcement service in the city.
The committee's final report is now available to the public for download on the city's website at www.CityOfMontrose.org/Report
Following nearly five months of intensive analysis, members of the PSCAC presented findings to the City Council Tuesday. The report stated that any action regarding staffing and funding changes at the Police Department should be at the direction of the City Council.
The formation of the PSCAC resulted from a public meeting in early 2018 where a group of concerned citizens representing Montrose Regional Crime Stoppers brought data to the council that they believed supported their conclusion that police services in the city are greatly understaffed and underfunded.
In September councilors unanimously approved a resolution creating the PSCAC. In December the City Council appointed 17 members from the Montrose community to serve on the PSCAC and hired Dr. Jack McGrath of McGrath Consulting LLC of Grand Junction to facilitate the process.
