BUNKER HILL, Ind. —
Bunker Hill has been left with no police division after the city marshal and 4 reserve deputies resigned over complaints that the City Council mismanaged the division and requested officers to carry out unlawful actions.
The Kokomo Tribune stories City Marshal Michael Thomison submitted his letter of resignation, together with resignation letters from his 4 reserve, unpaid deputies, in the course of the common assembly of the city board Monday night.
Thomison alleged in his letter that the city board requested him to be concerned in unlawful, immoral and unethical actions, together with requesting confidential info and asking him to conduct felony background checks on different board members.
Council President Brock Speer says the council was “blindsided” by the resignations.
Bunker Hill has about 890 residents.
