Executive SummaryThe Borough of Carlisle is in the process of evaluating or assessing whether to keep Carlisle Police Departmentdispatch and two (2) police Lieutenants or transfer police dispatch to Cumberland County and eliminate one (1)Lieutenant position. This essentially is a cost – benefit analysis.There are several issues to be considered in this evaluation process.Dispatch Issues for Consideration are:1. Cost2. Closing Police Station3. Services Performed by Dispatchers to be assumed by Police Officers4. New Radios5. Records Management System (RMS)6. Downtown Carlisle Camera System7. Commonwealth Law Enforcement Assistance Network (CLEAN)8. Acquisition of cell phones9. 911 vs. 243-525210. Status of Carlisle Police Department DispatchersLieutenant’s Position Issues for ConsiderationCurrently the Carlisle Police Department organizational structure includes two (2) Lieutenants. The organizationalchart and information on the job responsibilities of the Lieutenants is included in this report. Some of the issuesregarding having one (1) or two (2) Lieutenants contained in this report are:1. Redistribution of Lieutenant workload.2. Establish a Detective Sergeant rank.3. Transfer Parking Administration to Borough Hall.4. Withdrawal from PLEAC Accreditation5. Eliminate Citizen Police Academy6. Increase work hours of part time Administrative Assistant7. Incident Management8. Costs
Although substantial cost savings could be realized by eliminating dispatch, a Lieutenant position, or both, the police department strongly believes such reductions will be detrimental tothe department’s ability to carry out its public safety mission.
