New London, Minn., for 2012 cuts police service to 10 hours a week


NEW LONDON -- Police coverage in New London is being cut nearly in half next year in order to save money.

As part of the 2012 budget approved Wednesday, the New London City Council approved a reduced contract for police protection from the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office.

The city's current contract is for 20 hours a week during the summer months of May through September and 15 hours a week for the winter months.
