FORD CITY, Pa. - Some Armstrong County residents are upset about a plan to disband a police department to save money.
More than hundred Ford City residents raised their hands in favor of keeping their police department at a special community meeting Tuesday.
“I’m a father and a husband. I don’t know how in good faith I can continue to raise my kids in a town that doesn’t have police protection,” said a resident.
“It’s scary. I don’t want to handle some of the situations myself,” said a business owner.
Mayor Marc Mantuili is fighting the cuts as well.
The plan is meant to save money.
The borough has two full-time officers and 12 part-time officers now.
Council will meet Monday to discuss the plan further. Residents said they’ll be there to fight it.
