Saratoga Looks to Approve Five-County Sheriff’s Office Sharing of Resources on Contractual Basis

BALLSTON SPA — The Saratoga County Public Safety Committee unanimously approved a measure this month that recommends a cooperative agreement be inked with Washington, Warren, Fulton and Montgomery counties to share tactical team personnel, equipment and resources. 

The five county sheriff’s offices have experienced a need for sharing resources or general police back-up within their jurisdictions during which a joint response would be the most effective way to deal with certain criminal cases, scenes and investigations, according to the resolution. 

The agreement between the five counties would create a cooperative contract and codify what has previously conducted joint services on a “handshake” basis. The agreement would see the sharing of “Sheriff’s Office personnel, equipment and resources.”

The proposed intermunicipal agreement is anticipated to be among the agenda items at the Board of Supervisors monthly meeting on Aug. 15.
