The town, the village and the Liberty cops
Town council member Lynn Killian wondered what the sheriff’s office and state police would do of there were no longer a village police force. Representatives from both organizations said they would like to have the issues raised in a letter which their superiors could respond to.
It has been suggested in the past that the sheriff’s office might be able to provide protection for a lower cost because sheriff’s deputies make significantly less money than village police officers, by one account $25,000 less per year.
The two boards agreed to explore the issue further and to hold a public hearing at an unspecified date to get input from both town and village residents.
