COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah (AP) -- The two-year old city of Cottonwood Heights is considering establishing its own police force instead of relying on law enforcement from Salt Lake County.

The city will conduct a feasibility study to see if it can afford its own police force.

Cottonwood Heights is one of a handful of Salt Lake Valley cities that still contracts with the county for sheriff's services.

Bluffdale, Herriman, Holladay and Riverton are the other cities.

Riverton has already commissioned a similar study and Holladay is considering one too.
