Pittsville finalizing police department

PITTSVILLE, Md. – The Town of Pittsville is making some serious strides getting their new police department up and running.

The Wicomico County town and their police are now recognized by both the federal government and state of Maryland. But before they head out on the streets protecting the community, there’s still a lot of nuts and bolts to put together.

For example, they still are getting their computer system online as well as equipping the police car with lights and sirens. The hope is to provide the families who live in the town with better and quicker emergency services.

“One of the goals is to establish a base point so as the town grows, as the tax base grows, as the number of citizens increases if we need to hire someone we can bring them in and put them right on board since the police departments already been established,” explains Pittsville Police Chief Robert Harris.

Chief Harris who we just heard from is currently working on writing the general order of policies and procedures to protect the town and its citizens.
