SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – According to city and county officials, the city of Ridgetop has dissolved its police department, effective immediately.
The now-former Police Chief Bryan Morris told Smokey Barn News the decision came during a special called meeting Monday evening. The decision coming in at 7:15 pm.
After the meeting, Morris said he was told to take two police vehicles that were parked at city hall and return them to the station. Once at the station, Morris says a locksmith was already working on the locks. “That’s very funny,” Morris said. “I mean if they haven’t talked about this (which would be breaking the sunshine laws) and they hadn’t already planned on doing this why was there already a locksmith changing the locks?”
