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.
