A candidate running for Millwood mayor says it may be time for the town to consider forming its own police department. Jay Molitor, who is challenging incumbent Kevin Freeman, argues that the service the town gets from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is inadequate for Millwood’s population of nearly 1,800. He points to the police department of Reardan, a town with one-third the population, which has one full-time and several part-time officers.
