BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (AP) - Under a four-year contract, Morrill County deputies will be policing the city of Bridgeport.

Officials say the agreement takes effect July 1. It will cost the city $308,000 a year, with a provision to negotiate annual increases of up to 3 percent. Deputies already have been patrolling the city of about 1,500.

In April the city had but one officer and one trainee to protect residents and property after Chief David Hunt quit to take a position with the Dawes County Sheriff’s Office.
