FLORDELL HILLS (KMOV.com) - Flordell Hills is disbanding its police department only one year after it was formed.

Officials recently voted to do away with the department and contract out to Velda City starting January 1. Many residents told News 4 they are not happy with the decision.

“You have a small area and then you have a police officers who are working with this area, who know the people, and then you take the those police officers away. Then, you (replace them with) other police officers who do not know the people, who don’t know what some of these people are going through, me also. You take away from having a community,” said Flordell Hills resident Daryl Flynn.

News 4 reached out to Flordell Hills police and officials but they did not respond to repeated  calls.
