“This is heartbreaking to us.”

Goodhue, Minn., Mayor Ellen Anderson Buck, regarding a mass resignation of the police department. Police Chief Josh Smith, another full-time officer and five part-time employees have resigned; Smith, who led the resignations, said the city wasn’t offering enough money to retain officers. The mayor said that the resignations were surprising because the City Council gave officers a 5 percent increase and Smith a $13,000 raise earlier this year. (Associated Press — Aug. 16, 2023)
