Councilman: Public should have say in which precincts close

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Three Memphis Police stations are targeted for closure in 2014 - Mt. Moriah, Raines ad Old Allen Station.

Councilman Harold Collins, who used to represent the Mt. Moriah neighborhood, said at the very least, residents who live near the precinct should be able to say how they feel.

"I think it will have devastating ramifications," he said. "Let the people decide if their plan was a good plan."

The police department is forced to trim $6 million from its budget.
