Sag Harbor is thinking about getting rid of its police department and is looking into maybe having the Town of Southampton or the Suffolk County Sheriff Department handle the job instead. "This is about cost and whether or not the village can continue this way,” said the Mayor, noting that the annual salary for a police officer in Sag Harbor is about $178,000. But the current police chief (who would still be able to keep his job) said the whole discussion was "hurtful." [Sag Harbor Express]
