Calif. City Considers Dissolving Embattled Department
August 07, 2012
The Fullerton City Council will consider launching a study Tuesday that could lead to the dissolution of the city's 104-year-old police department, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The study is the first step in asking the Orange County Sheriff's Department to submit a proposal to take over law enforcement duties in Fullerton.
City Council members told The Times the move is motivated by a desire to reduce the $37 million Fullerton spends each year to operate the department. Councilman Travis Kiger added the agency didn't help itself with the handling of the Kelly Thomas case.

It is sad to see so many PD closing their doors..........And yes Fullerton PD has had some bad times lately. But, when you have an AH Councilman like Mr. Kiger, well then you're really screwed.
