Maine Town Loses Law Enforcement for a Year

June 18, 2012  | 

Lubec, Maine, will likely be without regular law enforcement services for a year, after the Washington County Sheriff's Department canceled its contract with the town.

Sheriff Donnie Smith said his department is two deputies short and can no longer spare those deputies to patrol the town of 1,625 residents. The sheriff and Maine State Police will provide law enforcement services on an as-needed basis, reports the Bangor Daily News.

The town has also explored the option of forming its own department.

Sign me up. I've already retired once and would love the chance to build another new department from the ground up. Lobster is also one of my favorites!

Sign me up. I've already retired from the drug smuggling game once. I'd love a chance to build a harbor for smugglers and terrorists in small town USA from the ground up. Plus, I love it when the police let people know they don't have the fundage to protect and serve. Makes it easier to commit crimes in that area.
