People in Tea react to police resignations

Posted: Updated:

The resignation of two members of Tea's police department doesn't seem to have the town concerned for its safety.

As we first told you last night, the town's police chief and another officer submitted their resignation to the city council Monday, unbeknownst to many in the community.

Many people who live in Tea are still unaware they are a town without a police chief but others say there's no concern.

Roberta Hindberg is an administrator at the Morgan Lane Village Assisted Living facility in Tea.

"I've worked with the acting police chief and I think he's very capable of handling any situation," Hindberg said.

She said she has complete confidence in Tea's acting police chief Brian Tvedt.

"He's been very helpful anytime there's been an issue that needs to be handled here at the facility. Obviously a medical facility, there's issues that come up, police need to come, he's been nothing but helpful and always quick to respond," Hindberg said.

Hindberg is aware of the problems the town of Tea has faced but admits the police seem to keep everyone safe.

"I do, for the most part feel that Tea is a quiet neighborhood. We've lived here for 11 years. There's been issues that come up of course there is, so that's going to happen anywhere but it always seems to be well resolved in a timely fashion," Hindberg said.

Despite the changes in the police department in the past two years, the people who live in Tea say they still have confidence in the police.
