The Amity Township police officer whose job was on the chopping block will remain with the force for now.
The township supervisors were poised to eliminate one position of the 12-member force to save money in the budget.
But during a packed meeting Wednesday night they decided to keep the position until at least the end of the year.
Several residents blasted the supervisors for even considering the cut.
The police officer whose job was in jeopardy is breathing a sigh of relief.
"When the news came out a couple of weeks back it was devastating for myself to myself and my family, personally and professionally. For them to at least extend their decision to see at least how the budget works out it means the world to us," Amity Township police officer Joe Coe.
The supervisors say they will consider all possible ts when budget talks begin in the beginning of the year.
They say they face a $380,000 deficit in five years.
