BREAKING NEWS: Manchester council votes to eliminate police department

In a vote taken at the council meeting on Monday, March 6, the village council of Manchester voted to eliminate the town’s police department, citing a lack of available funds as the reason.

We could have a million dollars in funds, but we can’t pull money from one department to pay for another,” Councilwoman Theresa Blythe told those gathered in the meeting hall of the town’s Community Building. “We’ve tried everything we can to keep our police department, but there is no money left to pay them.”

Look for a full and complete report on the meeting from Defender reporter Pat Beech in the March 8 edition of The People’s Defender.

  1. of all the towns in Adams County, if you were pulling police from them, Manchester should be the last that ever happens to. The place is over ran with drugs and drunk driving.

    1. BDun, your right! they need to get a NEW MAYOR that doesn’t play favoritism with his chief deputy can clean that place up. That use to be an okay town when I was a wee thing. My dad use to go down there and people would pick fights with him (after coming back from leave in military) and dad would win. So, when we would come to that town everyone would say that’s “quick draw McGraw” you better hide. LOL. But, back to this town…. Manchester will NEVER be cleaned up as long as you have that MAYOR … he is as worthless as the chief is.
