In an Edinboro University press release, Police Chief Angela Vincent said of the standing: “The Edinboro University Police Department has a very good working relationship with the Edinboro Police Department. In order to provide a safe community for both the university and the borough, we recognize that it is imperative to share pertinent information with each other.”
