Last April, the Christiana Borough Police Department began patrolling Atglen as part of a one-year contract that included an option to extend the pact.
At their meeting Wednesday, March 26, the Christiana Borough Council took action to keep the patrols going.
Council approved an amendment stipulating that the police services agreement is still for a one-year term but will continue for additional one-year terms without further action.
The agreement can still be terminated in writing by either of the boroughs.
The new amendment was needed to allow the police contract to stay in effect without re-advertising and adopting the ordinance every year.
The original ordinance was enacted last year and the agreement has gone so well that both boroughs want to continue with the service.
Previously, Atglen had gotten police services from the Parkesburg Borough Police Department.
