We at Brimfieldshow.com have spoken to both the Police Union Representative, and the Town Board of Selectmen. The call to the Town Board of Selectmen reached an assistant who assured us that "everything is under control".
We are awaiting a call from the Head of Selectmen, Robert Cheney, who has yet to comment on the situation resulting from the firing the Town's entire police force (except the Chief of Police).
According to our sources, while the Selectmen are seeking to hire officers from the surrounding towns, the surrounding town police officers refuse to work for a Town in the process of a labor dispute.
The state police have already stated that " The state police "will act to enforce the laws and maintain life and property," but there are "no plans to answer calls for routine service," Trooper Parsons said.
Therefore, until we post additional updates, USE EXTREME CAUTION ON THE ROADS, as it appears there are going to be limited policing available.
We will post further news as it develops.
