Bigger Bristol police district eyed

BRISTOL — The Police Advisory Board plans to take a first step to gauge public support for expanding the police district beyond the village limits to include the entire town of Bristol.
The board this week announced it will conduct a survey of Bristol residents outside of Holley Hall on Election Day.
“If the residents feel expansion is a viable idea, the board will then conduct public forums to discuss the cost of such an expansion and what it would mean to the residents of Bristol for the future,” wrote Jim Quaglino, chair of the advisory board, in a press release.
Quaglino said that if the survey results indicated that the public supported such an expansion, the next steps would include a discussion with the selectboard, which would give Bristol residents ample opportunity to weigh in.
The public’s participation will help the board “make a determination as to the feelings of the residents of Bristol pertaining to this matter,” said Quaglino.
The Police Advisory Board requested that residents take the time to fill out the survey as they exit the voting booths at Holley Hall on Nov. 6.
