Two police departments are joining forces to patrol the streets of Central Bucks County.

Officials say they're on track to launch the Central Bucks Regional Police Department this January.

The new department will combine resources from New Britain and Doylestown.

The two police departments signed a four-year labor deal.

They say they've compromised on health care plans and salaries.

Now, the department says its next step is to create a budget.
