Remerton Police ready for growth

December 18, 2006

Remerton - A small town police force is finally fully staffed and planning to grow.

Lt. Ivan Davis was hired to head the Remerton Police Department's Investigations unit.

His arrival marks the first time in Remerton history that the police station will be at full staff with eight full-time and full part-time officers.

The department is now embarking on a plan to get bigger and build on its reputation.  "Our big plans for the future is to receive state certification and one of my duties as the assistant chief is certification manager," Lt. Davis says.

For a police department to be certified they must meet more than 100 rigorous standards and policies.

The process could take up to 18 months.
