Police cars are parked in front of the Waldo Police Department in Waldo, Fla., Thursday Oct. 2, 2014. The tiny north Florida town known nationally as a speed trap decided on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014,  to officially dismantle its police force. The move came weeks after the police chief and interim chief resigned due to state investigations into ticket quotas, mishandling of evidence and other issues. The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office is now in charge of policing the town of 1,000, leaving some citizens worried that the speeding problem will worsen, and that criminals will feel like they have carte blanche.
