LUBEC, Maine — This remote Washington County coastal community may go more than a year without routine law enforcement services after a long-standing contract that now provides police protection through the Washington County Sheriff's Department runs out in 15 days.

Lubec, which has a population of 1,300, has no police department. For the past eight years, law enforcement needs here have been met under a contract with the Washington County Sheriff's Department. That contract ends June 30 and won't be renewed.
