WASHINGTON COUNTY The list of priorities for Washington County's police leaders in 2007 includes continuing the push to fund a Washington County central booking facility, hiring more law enforcement officers and getting methamphetamine legislation passed.

Maryland State Police 1st Sgt. Jay Resh, the Hagerstown barracks' acting commander, said a central booking facility is needed to keep troopers and other law enforcement officers on patrol instead of having them tied up for hours on one arrest.
