The town of China Maine decided back in June to utilize State and County police services and according to a report from the Kennebec Journal, that scenario will no doubt continue.

For those that were hoping that the town of China would re-activate the China Police Department, indications are that will not happen anytime in the near future as the Town Selectmen have begun the process of selling the towns only police cruiser.

Although not a perfect system, the report indicates that the Selectmen are happy with the coverage they now have and consider it an improvement over what they did had when the China Police Department was in place.

Part of the issue cited was the all of the China Police patrolmen were only on a part-time basis, and all had other full-time jobs which posed challenges in having the town covered with acceptable police coverage.

The town of China is hoping to sell its only police cruiser before it depreciates any further.
