Brooklet PD may be dissolved

Written by  Thursday, 20 March 2014 09:24

  One of the items on the agenda at tonight’s Brooklet City Council meeting is a proposal to dissolve the city’s 106 year old police department.  The job of providing police services would be taken over by the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Department.  Both Sheriff Lynn Anderson and Chief Deputy Jared Akins are to address the council about a request they had received to patrol and provide law enforcement for the city.


  The proposal is facing opposition from several Brooklet residents who plan to address the issue at tonight’s meeting. 


  The meeting will get underway at 7 p.m. tonight in the Brooklet City Hall at 104 Church Street.
