Public safety services encompass police and sheriff’s departments and fire services that range from fully volunteer to full-time career.  Though critically important to the well being of the community, these services are also extremely labor intensive, and represent major cost centers in a municipal budget. Municipal Consulting Services’ operational reviews are designed to assess the effectiveness of the agency and develop methods for improving performance and/or reducing cost.


In conducting a review, all facets of operations are analyzed including the following:

Overall command structure
Manpower scheduling
Training, personnel management and contractual conditions
Records management
Information and communication systems
Facilities and equipment
All other issues.


Upon completion, we integrate all findings and conclusions and develop concise recommendations for improved operations and cost-effectiveness.  Recommendations may pertain to the following:

Reporting relationships
Staffing levels
Shift scheduling
Specific assignments
Procedural upgrades
Capital purchasing
Technological upgrades.

This information is organized in a comprehensive final report document that includes a recommended implementation plan.  Potential cost savings or service upgrades (as applicable) are clearly specified in the plan. Our people have extensive experience in evaluating police, fire and emergency medical operations for villages, cities, counties, townships and special authorities throughout Michigan.
