Pottsville Suburbs Agree on Shared Police Force

The deal goes into effect on Saturday, June 1.

This would create the first regional police force in Schuylkill County involving more than two communities. Correct us if we’re wrong.

Essentially, Port Carbon will be covering Palo Alto and Mechanicsville with its police force.

The move is being overwhelmingly welcomed by the public, judging from social media reactions.

You can check out the comments for reactions from the public on a Facebook post at the campaign page for Joe Ferraro.
