Resignation of entire police force has baffled this town's residents
GREEN MOUNTAIN FALLS (Web Desk) - If you find yourself in an emergency situation in a US town of Green Mountain Falls, don’t bother calling police. In this scenic western hamlet, they no longer exist.
All four members - Chief Tim Bradley and his volunteer reserve officers - resigned April 14 over an alleged policy dispute with the new mayor of the 700-person town, and have not returned yet.
The lights are out at the station and the phone is not being answered, the UPI reports.
The town’s newly elected mayor, Jane Newberry, told the Colorado Springs Gazette that she didn’t learn about the resignations until an emergency meeting was held several days before she was sworn in.
“In an election year, there’s always some people who choose to stay and some people who chose to go, and I think that happens at every level of government,” Newberry said.
“He is pursuing other opportunities as I understand it, and good luck to him,” Newberry added, referring to Chief Bradley.
"I've stressed many times that the town is perfectly safe," she said. "One of the advantages of a small town - we have less than 700 full-time residents - is neighbors look out for each other."
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is also looking out for them as well. But it might become more difficult during the summer, when Green Mountain Falls' population jumps to 1,200 people.
