— MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A state task force report will recommend ways to cut Alabama's law enforcement spending, most likely by combining some of the state's 22 law enforcement agencies.
The Anniston Star reports (http://bit.ly/UwnWEE) that members of the Integrated State Law Enforcement Task Force aren't yet giving specifics of what would be cut under the proposal. The report is to be delivered to Gov. Robert Bentley this weekend.
Escambia County Sheriff Grover Smith said the recommendations should bring Alabama in line with neighboring states.
Smith is on one of two task forces appointed by the governor this summer to look at ways to cut duplication in the state's law enforcement agencies.
