About the Savannah-Chatham Police Department:

The City of Savannah, Georgia is in Chatham County.  Both the county and city essentially police the same area, but each had its own policing in agency.  According to the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department website, “In 1962, discussions began between the City and the County to consolidate the two police departments into one. These discussions would continue over the next 40 years until in 2003 both the Chatham County Commission and the Savannah City Council voted to formally merge the departments. Commissioned with task of completing the merger within a year, the department set about bring the two into one which by any standard is a Herculean effort. However, on January 1, 2005, the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department stood as a fully merged, fully functional, singular police agency.”
