Shaade Twp Police Dept.

An update to the story we brought to you Yesterday when the Shade Township supervisors voted to defund its police department due to a lack of tax revenue to pay for the officers.

Shade Township like many other communities are now relying on state police for coverage.

Nearby Windber Borough Police Chief Andrew Frear says his department will only assist the state police as back-up when troopers are responding to calls in surrounding communities.

Frear says Windber remains their priority.

“It’s not fair to the residents instead of state police.”

Frear said Windber Borough has a minimum of 2 officers on duty at all times.
