(Scroll down for video) People in Ohio, said that they feel safer now that their police department is closed and officers are off the streets.

The Public Entities Pool of Ohio (PEP), is an insurance group that offers insurance exclusively for public entities.

However, according to the insurance company, the Lincoln Heights Police Department became too corrupt and too risky to insure, therefore, their coverage was terminated.

Originally, the Fire Department and Lincoln Heights Police Department were terminated from the insurance policy,
but the Insurance for the fire department was reinstated.

The insurance company’s executive vice president said that there were many lawsuits, which included wage disputes, employment harassment, wrongful terminations, allegations of wrongful arrests and violations of civil rights within the departments.

Nine of these lawsuits are currently underway, prompting PEP to drop coverage, claiming that they could not keep up with the cost of all the lawsuits.

M. Laverne Mitchell, who is the mayor of Lincoln Heights, said that many of these lawsuits are frivolous.

Meanwhile, the Lockland Police Department and Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office that are nearby, have taken over emergency services for the city of Lincoln Heights.

The closure of the police department comes just days after an investigation revealed the overwhelming corruption within the department.

The investigation revealed that the department had not only hired, but promoted an officer with a felony background. He was later dismissed for felony theft in the office.

The investigation also found that an officer who was fired and later rehired, had a history of harassing female drivers and was a member of several motorcycle gangs known for their criminal activity.
