GILBERTON, Pa. - A Schuylkill County police force, made famous for what its chief was doing off-the-clock, will soon be no more.
The Gilberton Borough Council says it will begin to dismantle its police department.
The announcement comes a week after former Gilberton Police Chief-- and sole member of the force-- Mark Kessler signed a settlement agreement with the borough.
Kessler was suspended last July for using borough weapons in graphic YouTube videos.
Now the council says State Police will patrol the area.
