Officials in East Pittsburgh, PA, are considering dissolving that town's police department after a controversial officer-involved shooting in June, according to the Tribune-Review.

The city council met to discuss options for alternate police services—including the Allegheny County police or the police department of a neighboring municipality—but no decision has been made.

The council hopes to vote on the matter at its public meeting next month.

Council President Dennis Simon told the Tribune-Review that the borough has been considering dissolving the police force for years.
