Ohio city abolishes police department
The Associated Press
NEW MIAMI, Ohio — A community in southwestern Ohio is losing its police force.
New Miami Mayor Emma Jean Butler says the police were spending too much money. Police Chief Gary Vaughn disputes that, accusing the village of shoddy bookkeeping.
Vaughn says he worries about New Miami's 17 full-time and part-time police officers. They've already been pulled off their patrols.
New Miami is about 40 miles north of Cincinnati
