Cambria Residents Have Mixed Feelings About Disbanding the Police Department

(Cambria) Reactions to the disbanding of the Cambria Police Department were mixed at last night’s meeting. About two dozen residents attended the special board meeting and about half the public comments were supportive of the change with some saying the current board has a track record of operating carefully. One resident said the tough economy forced a change that should be looked at as an opportunity. Others were more critical and questioned why the board moved so quickly. One woman said she was putting her house on the market because she didn’t want to live in a community without police protection.
