Fire chiefs question Public Safety Officer concept

Program would cross-train police officers, firefighters


Anderson Fire Chief Phil Rogers said he wants all the information available before he forms an opinion about PSOs. He said he recently had a meeting with Crenshaw about the possible merits of the program, but he’s still in the process of researching the idea.

“It’s something to look into. Here, you’ve got to think about saving money, and PSOs are one of the things that are out there,” Rogers said. “I’m not going to say I’m for or against it until we have all the information.”
