Erik Estrada still has a special place in his heart for Officer Francis "Ponch" Poncherello, the character he played for six seasons on "CHiPs. " So much so that when his cell phone rings during our interview, it's a familiar tune - the theme from "CHiPs. " "Isn't that trippy, baby?"

The Hancock Town Council has approved an agreement with the Washington County Sheriff's Department that gives the town's four police officers law enforcement jurisdiction outside town limits. Town officers already assist the Sheriff's Department on calls outside the town, but they cannot make arrests, officials said. Hancock Police Chief Donald Gossage said the action, taken Wednesday, will clear up confusion over jurisdiction. A few incidents have occurred near Hancock's borders, but those cases have been dismissed in court because of concerns over which law enforcement agency had jurisdiction, Gossage said.
