Tea Considering Scrapping Police Department

March 9, 2010, 11:50 AM

Tea Considering Scrapping Police Department
TEA, SD - Officials in Tea are considering dissolving the city's long-standing police department and relying instead on sheriff's deputies for law enforcement.

City officials say contracting with Lincoln County could save thousands of dollars for the growing city of 4,100 people, but it might also upset longtime residents who are used to always having a police officer around.

The nearby town of Harrisburg in 2004 decided to contract with the county for law enforcement.

Sheriff Dennis Johnson told Tea City Council members that he would have to assess his department's ability to absorb a town the size of Tea and also have the support of its residents before he would feel comfortable taking over.
