OAKLEY, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan village that has been the center of disputes over publicly releasing the names of those involved in its police force turned to donors to pay for its more than $20,000 insurance policy this fall.

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

The village earlier decided to bring back its reserve police force. The Saginaw News reports (https://bit.ly/1MOAp2S ) companies and people associated with the police reserves pitched in for the insurance premium.

The village about 75 miles northwest of Detroit shut down the police department in September 2014 but later reinstated its operation. Reservists sued to keep their names secret, but names were later released.
