The future of the Police Department in the Village of Merrillan is uncertain.

Village leaders will have to decide whether to keep their law enforcement agency or instead, contract with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.

The dilemma for the village of Merrillan came up last month when two of its police officers resigned.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department already has contracts with Alma Center and Taylor.
