At its Nov. 14 special meeting the Colonial Beach Town Council denied attempting to abolish the Colonial Beach police department (CBPD), terming the notion a rumor. Despite audience members who watched or attended previous meetings stating the council was unclear about their intentions, council members continued to deny intentions of looking into abolition of the CBPD.
Colonial Beach Town Council has skirted around the issue of what to do with the CBPD since Oct. 10 council meeting. At that meeting the council had scheduled on their agenda to meet with Westmoreland County Sheriff, C. O. Balderson. Although the agenda did not state the nature of the meeting nor did attendees speaking on the matter offer up the reason, Mayor Mike Ham stated in a phone interview on the following Monday, that a few council members have requested Balderson meet with them in an open meeting to discuss consolidation of the CBPD and the Westmoreland Sheriff's office.

The resignation states the circumstances under which Curtin decided to run for Council, ultimately applying for an appointed position and later being voted into a four-year term on Council. Curtin stated in his resignation that he joined council to address grave concerns for the future of the town and the need for hard decisions. Curtin did specifically outline these items but said when he was voted in he was hopeful that things would change.
