Now, the Union County Major Crimes Team and the Oregon State Police Forensic Services Division are investigating the case, but the community is also reacting. At least a dozen people are calling for the city council to disband the small police department and to replace it with contracted services from the Union County Sheriff’s Office. Others are calling for the mayor and the police chief to resign.
The community is meeting tonight to discuss what should happen next.
Do you live in Elgin? What experiences have you had with the police there? Do you live in a small town? How does law enforcement work where you live?
