OAKLEY, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan village has decided to bring back its reserve police force, which has been the center of disputes over publicly releasing the names of those involved.

The Saginaw News reports (https://bit.ly/1G5Gpop ) Oakley village President Rich Fish says Tuesday’s 4-3 council vote is the first step and the department will need proper documentation before reservists are activated. Fish says there will be “limited numbers” of reservists.

There are roughly 300 residents of the Saginaw County community but it had more than 100 reserve officers from around the state. Many made payments to maintain police credentials.

The village about 75 miles northwest of Detroit shut down the police department in September but later voted to reinstate its operation. Reservists sued to keep their names secret, but names were later released.
