The small police department of Waldo, Florida has been disbanded, after officers reported they were forced to meet an “illegal ticket quota.” This news comes just weeks after the police chief resigned

The Waldo Police Department had only seven (7) police officers, yet those seven managed to write 12,000 speeding tickets last year, which resulted in the collection of more than $400,000 in fines.

Waldo’s City Council voted this week 4-1 in favor of eliminating the small police department.
