Bath village trustees have agreed to go ahead with developing mutual aid and support between the village police department and the Bath VA.
The plan, which was more than three years in the making, was given the green light by trustees Tuesday night.
The August 2007 proposal allows the two law enforcement units to share criminal and investigative information, training and crime-related statistics.
Other elements of the proposal call for a listing of arrests by Bath police to help the VA identify anyone illegally receiving VA benefits, sharing radio frequencies and continued open communications.
Bath Police Chief David Rouse has supported agreement but said some of the contract language was unclear.
The trustees approval came after Village Attorney John Leyden said the contract, drawn up by the VA, was OK.
Rouse said he will meet with the VA police chief and implement the plan soon.
