Regional Police Force meeting scheduled

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Dauphin County commissioners will hold their first meeting on Tuesday about creating a regional police department.

The regional police department would combine some, or even all, of Dauphin County's 17 police departments.

A committee containing members of law enforcement and elected officials have been studying the idea, which was announced last month.

Commissioner Mike Pries says a regional police force would enhance safety and save taxpayers money.

The meeting is on Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Best Western on East Park Drive in Lower Paxton Township.
