Columbia Borough studying future of police department

Columbia Borough is beginning a study about consolidating police forces, just as the issue is popping up in more and more communities across the region.

The state Department of Community and Economic Development will run the study at no cost to the borough.

It will look at the department's operations - call volume, staffing and costs - but it will also evaluate whether some type of merger or consolidation with neighboring communities makes sense.


  1. Merging makes the most sense if they can find someone that wants us.
