HOLLAND (WHTC) - Police and firefighters in Holland won’t have to learn each other’s responsibilities under a recommendation from a public safety study committee. The eight-member committee says while there is strong support for the idea, having police officers and firefighters cross-train is not required to take advantage of each division’s shared knowledge, flexibility and cost effectiveness. The study calls for maintaining staffing at current levels – 57 full-time sworn police officers, 18 full-time firefighters and 30 part-paid firefighters. The City Council is expected next Wednesday to accept the report as information.
