Flushing Twp. police officers win arbitration case

Posted: Updated:
FLUSHING TOWNSHIP (WJRT) -

(01/24/13) - Flushing Township police officers took a big step to getting their jobs back Thursday.

The township disbanded its police department in February, and now an arbitrator has ruled the police officers deserve their jobs back, and more. 

"Any out of pocket expenses they incurred during that timeframe, the township would be responsible for," says police officer labor representative Lloyd Whetstone.

There is one problem. The officers may not have a department to go back to.

"The department has sold the vehicles and sold the radios," Whetstone says. "They have some equipment left, but the majority of it has been sold."

Since Flushing Township got rid of their department, Genesee County has been responsible for patrolling that area.

Sheriff Robert Pickell says his department's contract with Flushing Township runs through the end of March. He's not sure what will happen after that.
