Resolution approved to help law enforcement

Michigan’s House Appropriations Committee this week approved a resolution, enabling county sheriff’s deputies to continue patrolling roads in cities and villages that have lost municipal police officers because of economic challenges.

Introduced by state Rep. Aaron Miller, the resolution ensures cities and villages will have sufficient law enforcement presence in light of economic challenges that forced the municipalities to cut their police forces.

The resolution enables county sheriffs’ patrols to receive funding to maintain a law-enforcement presence in cities and villages that have cut their own police departments within the past three years, Miller said.

Miller introduced a similar resolution that was passed during the last legislative session to prevent cuts in secondary road patrol funding in Wayne, Branch, Iosco and Otsego counties.
