A message from Bath Borough Council:

At their September 5th Regular Session, Borough Council voted unanimously to have the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) provide law enforcement duties to the Borough of Bath. What does this mean?

Under the Colonial Regional Police Commission (CRPC) Articles of Agreement, a member municipality that withdraws from the organization must give the commission at least one-year advanced notice by or on December 15th of the preceding year. The borough provided such notice in July. If no other arrangements are made, the Colonial Regional Police Department (CRPD) is the borough’s law enforcement service agency up until December 31, 2018 at 11:59 PM. PSP would then assume law enforcement duties on January 1, 2019 at midnight.

Borough officials have offered the CRPC a buy-out option. This option would allow the borough to pay CRPD a set price for 2018, however service would be discontinued as of December 31, 2017 at 11:59 PM. This option saves money for the borough and CRPD. The details of the buy-out option are confidential and still under negotiations. If this buy-out option is accepted by CRPC then, as part of the agreement, the Colonial Regional Police would discontinue service as of December 31, 2017 at 11:59 PM. PSP would assume law enforcement duties on January 1, 2018 at midnight.

Again, to summarize: Borough Council has elected to withdraw from CRPC. Under the Articles of Agreement, the Colonial Regional Police will serve the borough through 2018, officially ending on December 31, 2018 at 11:59 PM. Borough Council has voted to allow the Pennsylvania State Police provide law enforcement duties to the borough. On January 1, 2019 at midnight, PSP assumes law enforcement jurisdiction. The borough has offered a buy-out option to CRPC. If the terms and conditions of that buy-out option are accepted within the next few months, the switch from Colonial Regional Police to State Police will occur much faster. Under an accepted buy-out option, CRPD would discontinue service on December 31, 2017 at 11:59 PM and PSP would assume law enforcement duties on January 1, 2018.

Please keep in mind, it is possible that the buy-out option agreement could be reached between the borough and CRPC sometime in 2018 that could prompt a switch from CRPD to PSP mid-year. The borough is hopeful however, that a smooth transition will take place prior to the close of 2017.

Keep checking back to our website and the borough’s FaceBook page for the latest changes and developments. Should you have any questions at all about this process, please contact our office during normal business hours (610) 837-6525. Members of Council and Mayor Mirabito are also available to answer any questions you may have.
