The Delaware State Police Troop 9 in Odessa and Troop 3 in Woodside, will initiate a realignment of troop boundaries starting Jan. 7.
Traditionally, Troop 3 provided uniform patrol services for all of Kent County. With the new troop boundaries, Troop 9 will now handle calls for service in northern Kent County. Troop 3 uniform personnel will be responsible for the remainder of Kent County. Troop 3 Criminal Investigative Units, to include the drug unit and Governor's Task Force personnel, will not be affected and will continue to provide detective services for all of Kent County.
