Lodge Question: Is there a new push to combine TPD and TCSO into a Metro Police Department?

Chief Jordan Answer:

I hope that I can put this rumor to bed once and for all. There are NO plans in the works by the Mayor's office, the Sheriff or me to merge the two agencies. I vehemently opposed such a merger at the outset and still do. To think we are looking at a County takeover is counter-intuitive when you consider that we are getting approved for more academies on a regular basis in an effort to get us up to an 815 officer staffing level. The Mayor is in agreement with me that we need to remain separate and has been for over 18 months now. In short, it ain't gonna happen while I am here.
