Beginning in mid-July, auxiliary police and authorized City of Hagerstown employees will officially serve in the role of parking enforcement officers. Currently the city's police chief can designate “enforcement officers,” and has done so with auxiliary police and other city workers in the past. Several wording alterations to the Hagerstown city code will make such designations part of the code, city's Parking System Supervisor Jason Rodgers said. Rodgers said the wording updates merely clean up city code.
