More police officers will be on duty at the same time in Franklin if the city changes to longer shifts.

Next year, the Franklin police chief has proposed having patrol officers begin working 12-hour shifts, the same type of schedule already used by other local police departments. City board of works members were in favor of the plan and will vote in July.
