ITHACA, N.Y. (WENY) -- Local lawmakers are looking further into the possibility of a joint location for two law enforcement agencies.

The Tompkins Country Legislature's Public Safety Committee advanced a recommendation supporting a study to evaluate the feasibility of establishing a joint city-county safety facility.

The committee met three weeks ago to review the findings of a preliminary study, which examined potential opportunities to co-located the Ithaca Police Department and Tompkins County Sheriff's Office on a site within the City of Ithaca.

This more in-depth study will evaluate the costs and benefits associated with such a facility.
