Packed house discusses King PD replacement idea

KING, N.C. (WGHP) — The King Public Library was packed Monday night as residents discussed the idea of replacing police officers with Stokes County deputies.

The community meeting was called a week after council asked the city manager to work with Stokes County officials to determine how much such a replacement would cost.

County commissioners had their regular board meeting on Monday, but they didn’t talk about King’s request for information as it wasn’t on the agenda.

Still, some residents of the town of nearly 7,000 let their strong feelings be known Monday night.
