Each branch office of New Jersey's Motor Vehicle Commission could eventually have its own police officer as part of a plan to beef up security at an agency that has been known for lax oversight. John Huertas, the commission's director of security, said yesterday that officials hoped to start placing local officers at the state's 45 motor-vehicle offices and four regional centers by December. The state would pay for the officers' time in an effort to deter customers from trying to get a driver's license with fraudulent records - and employees from helping them do it. The state held a special training session in Trenton yesterday to acquaint more than 40 officers with how to detect fake documents, with statutes on document fraud, and with basic motor-vehicle operations.

The East Brandywine Police Department, a small force near Chester County's rural northwestern edge, had a little extra time and manpower on its hands, so Chief Raymond Copp did what any enterprising businessman would do. He decided to expand. The department is looking to branch out, by providing traffic enforcement to East Nantmeal, opening a second office, and training a newly acquired German shepherd puppy for drug or bomb searches. The force now patrols 32 square miles of winding roads, farms, mobile homes and high-priced housing developments in East Brandywine and Wallace Townships, home to a combined population of about 9,000.
