PERRYVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Boyle County Sheriff’s Department is providing protection to residents in Perryville after the city’s police force of two resigned.

The Advocate-Messenger (https://bit.ly/1pKD7NF) reports Perryville Police Chief Charlie Parks and Officer Larry Nunes submitted their letters of resignation during a council meeting last week. According to the newspaper, scheduling conflicts arose after Mayor Anne Sleet had asked for a greater police presence during the afternoons. Parks requested a third officer to meet the demand; Sleet wanted Parks and Nunes to re-arrange their schedules.

Sheriff Marty Elliott said his office would provide law enforcement for the town until the situation is resolved.

City Attorney Lynne Coleman said the City Council would likely meet on Tuesday in a special session to discuss options to move forward.
