The Butler County Sheriff wants to take over policing duties in Fairfield Township.

In a letter to the township administrator, Sheriff Richard Jones says a proposed 4.8 mil public safety levy is too high. He says he can provide police services for what the levy currently generates, about $1.8 million he says.

He's proposing a five year agreement.

Township officials say they’ve received the sheriff’s letter but no formal action has been taken at this time.
