Cache County Sheriffs office in negotiations with Hyde Park for services

The Cache County Sheriffs office provides services to all of Cache County, even cities that have their own police departments like Logan, Smithfield, Hyde Park and North Logan.Sheriff Lynn Nelson says, in addition to that, his office contracts with 13 different entities for services unique to their security needs.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Nelson said right now talks are going on with Hyde Park as that community contemplates splitting from its arrangement with North Logan.”We’re seeing where it’s going,” Nelson said. “Hyde Park currently contracts with North Logan. Those two cities combine for the North Park Police Department. “The mayor asked for a bid from us to see what kind of process and what kind of costs we would charge to provide that same level of service to them.”Sheriff Nelson says it turns out that contracting with the sheriffs office would save Hyde Park City approximately $180,00.
