Do you folks who are familiar with the area think it's time for these departments to merge? They pretty much work out of the same office don't they? The city could use the extra manpower. Chime in.

Doing this would greatly help the police department, but I'm sure there are many other things to consider.

No, they might use the same building...but they do not get along together in the sand box.

They get paid (by different taxpayers) to cover different areas. I'd assume that if you want to use County cops to help within the City limits, you're OK with City cops helping out in the County, and other cities.

The only way you could do that would merge the Greenville PD into the County Sheriff. The Sheriff is a political position and like Skunk said, there would be jurisdiction problems if the Gvl PD patrolled outside their limits.

I can't comment on Greenville, but I believe they did in Charlotte. Is it common ?

I'm not sure. With them saying there is a shortage of city police, I figured it's something to consider.
