Gruver City Officials Discussing Disbanding City Police Department
Last night’s meeting was attended by more than 200 people. Gruver Mayor Buster Davis has been pushing for disbandment of the police department. The city would like to try to save money by outsourcing law enforcement to the Hansford County Sheriff’s Office.
Some in the city believe the move is motivated by a rift between city hall and the police department. City residents at the meeting spoke on both sides of the issue.
No action will be taken until officials from Gruver meet with the Hansford County Commissioners to discuss the possibility of a contract.
