Village of 300 had 12 Officers and 100 Reserve Officers
The state police have taken possession of 31 pistols, revolvers and long guns used by officers in the small village of Oakley. There are 300 residents in the village but their police department consisted of 12 officers and 100 reserve officers.
1st Lt. David Simon, Commander of the Tri-County Post, said that Oakley's police chief Robert Reznick and Oakley's deputy clerk met with state police on Saturday to hand over weapons.
In September the Oakley Village Council voted to shut down the police department which is why the weapons were transferred into state custody.
