Local Police Department Shut Down

If you need a police officer in Jackson County's Village of Parma, you won't find one.

The doors at the police station are now locked for good due to budget cuts.

This comes after a vote at Tuesday night's board meeting.

The police sergeant tells News 10 the Village of Parma did not give any indication the police station would be closed down at the meeting. He says he begged for a month-long extension to let the department close properly, but the village president refused.

This means residents of Parma and Sandstone townships and the Village of Parma will have to call 911 for police services. Also, no police reports are available.

No word as to what will happen with pending cases.

We'll have much more on this story tonight on news 10.
