FALLS — Supervisors have approved an independent review of the Police Department that they hope will tell them whether they need to add officers.
The $32,550 study, approved by the supervisors last week, will review the structure of the department and make recommendations in areas such as community-based policing and patrol deployment. Maryland-based David M. Griffith & Associates will conduct the study.
``It's going to be a good way to evaluate the operation,'' Township Manager Jim Dillon said. ``Are we using resources now for the maximum? What are the ways to address the needs of the community, given our resources?''
