ENTIRE Police Department QUITS After Ongoing Issues With FL Town Commission | Roland Martin
Another small U.S. town is without a police force after every officer quit.
Melbourne Village, Florida’s six police officers submitted their resignations last week. Now, the village, with a population of 822, is deciding whether to rebuild the police department or extend a contract with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, which will step in to take care of police services in light of the resignations.
The Town of Melbourne Village, which is about 70 miles southeast of Orlando, is not the first to have its police department wiped out by widespread resignations. In July, the majority of the Kenly, North Carolina, Town Police Department resigned over a conflict with newly-hired black town manager Justine Jones.
According to the Police Executive Research Forum, resignations spiked 18-percent in police forces between 2020-2021.
