Officials Approve Dispatch Agreement Between RMU, Moon Police

The university has approached Moon Township Police about providing dispatch services, according to Moon officials.

The Moon Township Board of Supervisors approved an agreement for Moon Police to provide dispatch services to Robert Morris University campus police. 

The agreement, approved in a 4-to-0 vote Wednesday during the board's workshop session, includes a 12-month contract between the university and township police. 

Robert Morris University will pay an annual fee of $8,000 under the agreement. The university has requested to pay the township on a quarterly basis. 

Either party can end the agreement with 60 days notice, said township solicitor Adam Bish. 

Township Manager Jeanne Creese said the contract would not involve new hires in Moon's department. She said RMU Police Chief Randy Mink approached the department about dispatching for the campus. 

RMU's police department includes 12-sworn officers who provide 24-hour patrols on the Moon Township campus, according to the university's website. 

A start-date for the agreement was not immediately available. The contract is subject to approval by Creese, Bish and Moon Police Chief Leo McCarthy.
