Little River Band May Enter Into Law Enforcement Cooperative Agreement with City of Manistee

From Indianz:

The city council in Manistee, Michigan, voted in favor of a mutual aid agreement with the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians.

The tribe is offering its officers free of charge. The city police chief said the service is crucial.

“There are many times when there’s only one police car working the entire county outside of the city. My concern is someone’s going to dial 9-1-1 and no one’s going to be available to respond,” said chief Dave Bachman, WPBN-TV reported.

The agreement lasts one year.
