Chatham County Commission passes police merger

Chatham County leaders have passed a new metro police merger agreement by an 8-1 vote.  Just last week, the city also said yes to an amended agreement that would give the county more power, while costing them less money. Friday’s agreement comes after months of talks between aldermen and county commissioners.

The original SCMPD merger agreement is set to expire in March and would result in the disbanding of the combined departments.
