Tri-communities eye joint police service
The tri-communities study many things. Some, although not all, result in action.
Douglas City Council was scheduled Tuesday to consider a resolution to create a joint study committee with Saugatuck city and township to make recommendations for police services within the three municipalities.
The cities now jointly operate the Saugatuck-Douglas Police Department while the township, far larger in total area and population, officially relies on Allegan County Sheriff’s Department road patrols. The township also leases a portion of its offices to a detachment of the Michigan State Police.
