Benton Harbor may be unable to keep police force

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- The city of Benton Harbor is looking to tackle its latest financial crisis.

Late Monday afternoon the city's emergency manager, Joseph Harris, held a rare news conference to address the problems created by some failed levies.

Harris explained the desperate financial situation in Benton Harbor.
Harris said since the city’s revenue was much less than expected, the city may not be able to support its own police department much longer.

If the city’s police department shuts down, the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office would have to take over.
