PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia might use civilians to keep traffic moving in the city.
City Council President Darrell Clarke plans to introduce a resolution on Thursday to explore what civilian traffic enforcement officers could do so that police could focus on criminal investigations.
Clark tells Philly.com civilian officers could issue tickets, but they would not carry firearms or have the ability to make arrests.
The mayor’s office has been pursuing a safer-streets initiative.
