Sorrento Mayor Mark Lambert says the insurance company that covers liability for the Sorrento Police Department has informed them they plan to stop covering the department on November 19, 2013.
That means the Police Department will be forced to get rid of its officers.
WAFB is told the Police Chief will keep his job because it is an elected position.
