Brooklet City Council considers dissolving police dept.

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLET, GA (WTOC) -

The Brooklet City Council is considering dissolving the town's police department and using deputies with the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office contracted to the area to keep it safe.

The city has asked the sheriff's office for an estimate of what the sheriff's office would charge to cover the extra officer's and patrol.

While this is not yet finalized, the Brooklet City Council is looking at the option.

A number of Brooklet citizens are opposed to the idea and have created a Facebook page to voice their concerns. To support the petition to keep the Brooklet Police Department open, click here.
