A county police department. That's just one of the ideas officials in Washington County are tossing around. County manager David Peoples says Washington County is conducting a study to evaluate law enforcement in the area. So far, a list has been compiled of strengths and weaknesses regarding law enforcement there and crime statistics are being compiled. Peoples says the root of this study is public concern expressed to county commissioners that crime is rising in the communities of Roper, Creswell and Plymouth. Peoples expects the next meeting on this issue to take place January 2006.
