Policing Funding Update
In 2021 Perry Township was able to utilize one-time American Rescue Act Funds to enter a funds matching contract with the Lake County Commissioners for limited policing through Lake County Sheriff’s Department. The current COPS agreement requires us to identify a continuing funding source to keep patrolling going beyond the first two years. We have had residents and business owners express their desire for a full-time permanent police presence. We will be establishing a community committee to address this challenge in the new year. Check back for monthly activity reports that will be provided by the Lake County Sheriff’s Department (Use link below to download and read March report).
