Milo Considers Contracting Police Services 

Catherine Pegram

Town leaders in Milo are considering a plan to turn over the community’s police presence to the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department. Right now the police department is without a chief or a sergeant.Town Manager Jeff Gahagan says it’s a good time to talk about rebuilding the department or contracting with the sheriff’s department for police coverage. County commissioners reviewed a proposal yesterday put together by Sheriff John Goggin.Under the draft, the sheriff’s department would provide three full-time deputies who’d live in the Milo area. Police cruisers and other equipment would also be turned over to the county. Milo selectmen are expected to review the idea at their next meeting in June.
