Tea Police Chief Job Draws Strong Interest

April 29, 2010, 7:26 AM

TEA, SD - Officials in the southeastern South Dakota town of Tea have been debating whether to do away with the police department, but that has not stopped people from applying for the police chief position.

The City Council in the community of 4,100 people has received about three dozen applications from people who want the job.

City officials have talked about contracting with Lincoln County for law enforcement to save money. Some residents circulated a petition to oppose the move.

City officials have tabled the idea of dissolving the police department. Mayor John Lawler says the Lincoln County sheriff's department does not want to pursue a contract with the city until a new chief is given a chance to work.
