ELLSWORTH, Maine (WABI) - Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth may soon have a police officer assigned to the campus full time.

The Ellsworth American reports the hospital will fund the salary for the officer, who will be employed by the city's police department.

City council will still need to approve this arrangement, one that would be similar to that of a school resource officer.

Details on the officer's schedule are still being worked out.
