Owego Makes Cuts To Police Force
7/27/2014 (Updated 10:52:02 PM)Owego residents are concerned after finding out that police will no longer be on patrol 24-7.
The Owego Police Benevolent Association released a flyer containing details about the village board cutting police services. The flyer notes that the board will not fill two full time police officer positions--even though they're already accounted for in the budget.
According to the association this would leave residents without patrols from 7 at night to 7 in the morning.
Owego Mayor Kevin Millar tells Fox 40 that he thinks the services should be 24-7.
The next village board meeting is Monday at 5:30.
