GEM is on the move

Or so we hear, this is the organization run by Roxbury Councilman Tim Smith that seeks to convince local governing bodies to share services to save money ..

Smith discussed his plans this week with municipal officials and today, we hear, he was meeting with the county police chiefs association.

One of Smith’s boldest ideas for GEM is to create regional policing ; that would reduce the authority of local chiefs.
