The police expansion feasibility study is coming together according to Smiths Falls CAO Malcolm Morris.

“The consultants have developed a model for what expanded policing would look like and are working on an analysis of the cost drivers,” said Morris.

The project has fallen slightly behind and will not be complete until October.  This is just a feasibility study and it will not result in an actual price tag but will inform the town as to whether it makes any sense to pursue the avenue of expanding Smiths Falls Police Services to serve surrounding municipalities, explained Chris Cumming, Smiths Falls councillor.
