Westtown and East Goshen townships are disbanding their police force.

The decision was announced tonight during the Westtown Board of supervisors meeting

In a statement, a spokesman for the Westtown-East Goshen Police Association called the move "reckless, irresponsible madness."

The police union says it has offered hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings, but both townships say it is not enough for the department to survive financially.
