Earlier this month, Easton Mayor Sal Panto wrote to his counterpart in the borough of West Easton to tell him that the city would no longer provide police coverage to its smaller neighbor starting in 2014.
It has nothing to do with a rise in crime, but with "personal disputes" in the borough wiping out police resources, officials in the two communities told the Morning Call.
According to the Express-Times, Wilson—which had provided police coverage to West Easton in the past—voted earlier this year not to discuss patrolling the borough again.
What do you think? Should West Easton opt for state police coverage, or try again with Wilson?
We'd also love to hear from West Easton residents on the situation. Let us know your thoughts about the situation in the comments.
