DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Delaware State Police are realigning troop boundaries in Kent County in order to better utilize the law enforcement agency's manpower.

Authorities say the realignment that takes effect Monday involves Troop 9, based in the New Castle County town of Odessa, and Troop 3, based in Woodside.

Traditionally, Troop 3 has provided patrol services for all of Kent County.

The new plan calls for Troop 9 to now handle calls in northern Kent County, essentially from the New Castle/Kent County line south to Denney's Road.

Troop 3 will be responsible for the remainder of Kent County.

Official say the realignment should be seamless for the public, and that public safety will not be compromised.

"We believe it is our duty to continually analyze and develop programs that enhance our ability to deliver effective and professional police services to the citizens and visitors of this state we are sworn to protect," explained DSP Superintendent Col. Nathaniel McQueen Jr. "This realignment of troop boundaries is an example of our commitment to deploy our personnel resources in a prudent fashion."
