YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — York will no longer have a limit to the number of police officers it’s allowed to have.

On March 21, York City Council unanimously voted to lift the police cap. They also voted to create a Detective Commander position, to help make the department more effective and efficient.

Before this decision was made, York City Police had a hiring cap of 100 officers, however they decided they wanted to lift this cap due to rising crime.
