Rockford Police Contract UPDATE

More than 125 Rockford police officers met Monday night to consider a merge with the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department.

For the past eight months, the police union hasn't been able to come to an agreement with the city.

Monday night at the UAW hall members voted to form a committee to further research the pros and cons of joining forces with the county. Critics argue this just a negotiation tactic.

Union members head back to the bargaining table Thursday, August 17.
