Piedmont, Canadian County propose plan to consolidate police forces

Posted: Updated:

In a joint press conference, officials with the City of Piedmont and the Canadian County Sheriff's Office announced a proposal to consolidate the police force with Canadian County.

Officials from both police forces both spoke during the press conference Friday at Piedmont City Hall where they laid out the plans.

Canadian County officials say if this plan is approved, Piedmont officers would "have options" and would be first in line for positions with the Canadian County Sheriff's Department.

This story was first reported by FOX 25's Christine VanTimmeren on Aug 29.

City and county leaders are wanting to hold a citizen meeting in the near future but have not set a date.
