A small Colorado town is finding itself without a police force after the entire department called it quits.
The Green Mountain Falls police department unanimously resigned in protest, citing policy issues and unhappiness with newly-elected mayor Jane Newberry, who was sworn in Wednesday night, according to CBS Denver. The chief and the three former officers of the department were not available for comment.
“In an election year, there’s always some people who choose to stay and some people who chose to go and I think that happens at every level of government,” said Newberry.
With no city police department, the only form of law enforcement for the tiny town comes from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.
Green Mountain Falls is home to around 700 people, with the population nearly doubling in the summer months.
