In 2007 Salt Lake County leaders began the process of creating the
Salt Lake Valley Law Enforcement Service Area (SLVLESA). The goal was to allow cities to join together to fund regional police services in a more coordinated and cost efficient manner. The SLVLESA does not provide law enforcement services; instead the SLVLESA provides a funding mechanism for police services. SLVLESA forwards revenue to the Unified Police Department (UPD), which provides law enforcement services to the unincorporated County and member cities. The
UPDis responsible for all police operations.
The Salt Lake Valley Law Enforcement Service Area includes unincorporated Salt Lake County,
Riverton City and
The efforts of the Service area and Unified Police Department are paying dividends as evidenced by Midvale City's decision to join the Unified Police Department in 2011 and Taylorsville City's decision to join 2012. All entities have saved money by Midvale's and Taylorsville's decisions to join and share administrative costs.
The SLVLESA Board of Trustees includes Salt Lake County Council Members
Jim Bradley and
Michael Jensen, Salt Lake County
Mayor Ben McAdams, Riverton City
Council Member Trent Staggs and Herriman City
Mayor Carmen Freeman..
