Port Carbon, Palo Alto, and Mechanicsville agreed to a inter-municipal agreement earlier this week to share police forces.
The deal goes into effect on Saturday, June 1.

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.
