‘It all started with a patch’

When Salisbury Township Police Chief Allen W. Stiles started with the department in 1994, he wanted to know the 10 full-time and 11 part-time officers and staff.

“The first thing I did was work every shift and ride with every officer,” Stiles said. Officers thought that was great.

“I asked two questions: What’s wrong with this police department and what do you want to see this police department become? They had a lot of ideas.”
