25 Years Ago - October 28, 1997

The possible contracting out of Patterson’s police services will reach the serious discussion stage when the City Council meets this Tuesday in a special workshop session.

Captain Richard Breshears of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department is scheduled to present in detail his department’s proposal to provide local law enforcement services for the city. Three weeks ago Breshears appeared before the council with figures indicating a savings of $150,00 a year when compared with Patterson’s present police department budget.
