The Albertville police force wants more officers and vehicles. Chief Doug Pollard and Assistant Chief Major Jamie Smith have asked city council for permission to hire three additional officers to cut down on overtime costs and bring the force to a total of 45 fully staffed. At this rate, Pollard told the council the force could spend over $227,000 on overtime by the end of the year. Pollard only needs $85,000 to hire more officers. And new vehicles would cut down on repair costs for existing ones, which Pollard says aren't in good shape. The ball is in city council's court now.
