MILLBRAE, Calif. — The Millbrae City Council has voted to disband the city's police force and move toward outsourcing law enforcement to the San Mateo County sheriff's office as a cost-cutting measure.

The City Council voted 3-2 Tuesday night to disband the 63-year-old Police Department to save an estimated $1.1 million a year. The council directed city staff to begin negotiating with the sheriff's office, which took over police operations within the past year in San Carlos and Half Moon Bay after those cities dissolved their forces.
