A new benchmark for cost of police services

Original post made by Peter Carpenter, Atherton: Lindenwood, on Jun 21, 2012

The Woodside Town Council approved a budget that included ■ Sheriff's contract: A council majority approved a three-year $1.45 million law enforcement contract with the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office. Unlike the annual jumps of 10 percent in previous contracts, this one rises by 4 percent for the first year and 3 percent after that.


The population of Woodside is 5287 as of the 2010 census or a cost of $274 per capita.
