MCRPD voted out for 2011

Full story: The Sentinel 270
After more than a year of discussing its options regarding police service for 2011, the Lewistown Borough Council voted Monday evening to leave the Mifflin County Regional Police Department - the organization it helped to form 16 years ago. Full Story

I hear way more calls being held for LPD than I do Regional. Probably because LPD is always riding around together and not in separate cars. Summer has started so when can we expect the bike and foot patrol in Lewistown.

Wow, LPD was playing "stackem" all night long last night. One call after another. They are going to need more officers real soon.

Today we now learn that Armagh Twp. was not in the agreement with MCRPD, They just acted as if they were. So MCRPD stopped their service and restarted it after a meeting later. They were not in MCRPD. but still wanted to be the bully. Lewistown must have figured they had enough of that after being the biggest supplier of the money and now left MCRPD. Good decision.

The MCRPD chief must have went to math class with Tim Geithner. He reported that the number of incidents DECREASED in 2012, The non traffic incidents went from 9 in 2011 to 19 this year in Jan. and there were 26 arrests in Jan 2012 compared to 12 in 2011.

Well I guess the paper could have made a mistake too.

It was 2008 that this same kind of Wanted add in the Sentinel sparked me to call the Sentinel and ask if there was a problem in MCRPD that we are not hearing about. They said they were looking into it and a report will come out later. What a report that was and it ended with Lewistown and Bratton Twp leaving MCRPD. In today's paper is that same kind of add that Armagh Twp. again is taking resumes for one full time and one part time police officer. So the bullies are not done yet and none of this comes as a surprise to me,I expected it. Don't be surprised if Union Twp. leaves also in the future.

Why couldn't all three of the police join together and have just one police force? Is it because there is too much ego on the respective boards?
Obviously it was for Lewistown. They don't have a crime unit, nor a school resource officer. EGO

Ego as well as "good ole boys" played a very large role in Lewistown leaving MCRPD. They didn't like that their boy "lyin' Bill got kicked to the curb and they didn't like not being able to call the shots. Now, they have Lyin' Bill on the payroll (as promised) and they have the headaches, bloated budget, and a mayor in charge who couldn't find her own rear end with both hands and a flashlight. They are so in over their heads and no way out.

Rumor has it that Derry twp has developed a formula for how much coverage the members of Regional need and are trying to force them to buy service accordingly. Maybe that's why Armagh is taking applications.

If the openline caller knows what he is talking about,then Armagh Twp. must have secretly left MCRPD without any mention of it from the Sentinel except for the Public notice where Armagh twp. was taking applications again for Police officers.

If Armagh Twp leaves they are fools and should vote out their supervisors. State Police are more interest in Juniata County. As a property owner, I am appalled if this is true. If so, you gentlemen will never get a vote from me. Explain yourself in public

This is gonna get good. Lewistown is currently being taken over by dopers and drug dealers after the departure of MCRPD. Milroy will be no different. Hold onto your property people, hard times are comin.

The Openline caller must have knew what he was talking about. Today the Burnham Borough leaked another bit of information that in 2013 there will only be four areas - Brown Twp, Union twp, Derry Twp. and Burnham Boro in Mifflin County Regional Police. It said that Armagh Twp. is now in MCRPD. That sounds to me like they won't be after 2012 and not a peek from the Sentinel on this as there was when Lewistown departed.Derry Twp. will be putting up the money for this service now that Lewistown left.

I guess that is about as official as it will get that MCRPD is laying off two officers since Armagh Twp. will no longer be soliciting police service from MCRPD. Is Union Twp. next? It will soon be back to where Burnham and Derry Twp. might be operating out of the small Burnham office building as they were at one time before Derry moved to the building at the Park near the pool. Makes you wonder if the plans to move into the Army Reserve building is still on and why?

Lewistown Resident, surely you STILL can't be that stupid. Seriously!!!!

On another note,,,Rumor has it that ole Chief Mitchell already has a hit list out for people he doesn't care for and publicly tells people about it. How stupid is that. This is what you get without proper police candidate procedures. Way to go supervisors.

MCRPD must be trying to get their last arrest in Armagh Twp, while they are still in MCRPD. They had a police report in the Sentinel that they arrested a guy for drug possession after he tried to hide his drugs in his pocket. They forgot to report that almost every police officer near Mifflin County responded to Decatur Twp for a Man with a gun in a house Saturday as reported on Wgal U-LOCAL..

They were committed till the end of the year what did you expect them to do. I applaud them for not slacking off like most people would have done and continued to do their job.

I bet you would go to a place where a person had a gun all by yourself. State police needed help and they helped, big deal. It's people like you who make stupid comments that are clueless about how certain jobs function but you're the first to run your yip just to hear yourself talk. Maybe they'll only send one guy if someone comes to your house and starts firing bullets at your house. Bet your opinion would change if that happened, wouldn't it.
