The Ohio Fraternal Order of Police said the Village of Brice gives law enforcement a “black eye.”
State lawmakers are taking steps to slam the brakes on their ability to issue traffic tickets.
And now, the Franklin County Chief’s Association booted the Village of Brice Police Department out of their organization.
The Association has long been critical of Village’s aggressive traffic enforcement, and said it’s “policing for profit.”
In a letter to Village of Brice Police Chief Bud Bauchmoyer, the Association explained why it voted to remove the Village from its organization. It reads, “The Village’s enforcement practices and actions do not model, support or adhere to the vision, mission and core values” of the Association.
The Village has two options. It can appeal the appeal the Association’s ruling, or wait until next year and reapply to the organization.
Chief Bauchmoyer told NBC 4 Investigator Tom Sussi that he will contact the Village’s solicitor before taking action.
