Keyport Council Finally Moves on Police Situation

Keyport has named a provisional chief of police after a two year vacancy. The Council has been trying in vain to consolidate their police force with neighboring departments, apparently to save money. According to APP, the Borough was negotiating a merger with Union Beach, but those talks fell through in June. A restructuring ordinance that will trim key positions from the force and save salary expenses will get a public hearing on 2 August. It sounds like the relationship between the police and the Borough Council is pretty abysmal.
