Merger of Allegheny County, Port Authority and county Housing police units proposed

County Republicans are leading a charge to consolidate the police units at PAT, Housing Authority, and the County. I can't see how this would change the services offered and suspect that greater efficiencies can be brought about by eliminating a few bureaucrat positions at the County. I look forward to seeing study results on how this change could bring about greater efficiency and effectiveness to this basic public service. Perhaps this move could soften PAT's operating woes. The County would be left to deal with a portion of the pension & health cost that is cripping PAT's operating budget.
