Sometime in the near future the Lake Worth PD talk-groups will go silent as the users will have their radios re-programmed to become part of the PBSO compliment. It is unclear as to what district talk-group will support Lake Worth or if they will remain on their own.


LAKE WORTH — Though the action probably will bring a tax increase for residents, commissioners decided Monday that safety is what matters first as they voted to merge the city's police department with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Hope all goes well.
City needs to SIGN THE CONTRACT on the 25th to be official, though everyone wants it to happen.
A couple Commissioners are concerned of losing THEIR control over the PD for what ever reason. Hummmm

GOOD LUCK to all the LEO's and congrats!!

The vote is tonight and the concern was that taxes will go up. They will and no matter what they will not go down.

There are somewithin the agency who are trying to throw monkey wrenches into the project.

It's a 10 year contract.
