MoCo cuts could affect park police
The Maryland National Capital Park Police force could see a reduction in officers under a proposal to cut Montgomery County's budget, NBC 4 reports.
Under the proposal by County Executive Isiah Leggett (D), 18 of 88 officers could lose their jobs, the news station reports. Leggett also has proposed eliminating the department and merging it with the county's police department.
The president of the fraternal order of police that represents the park officers says the cuts would mean a loss of sense for many users of the park.
