Abstract : The paper explores the merits of employing civilian police forces on a regional basis and hypothesizes that such employment offers an effective response to increasing crime rates. Two methods of arriving at regional government are considered: cooperation and consolidation. Their relative merits are compared after which the police function is studied as it might be regionally executed within the parameters of cooperation and consolidation. Pertinent American and Canadian experiences in general government and law enforcement are cited and analyzed. The national crime problem is assessed in terms of rate and cost trends.
