Richland- People in Richland are complaining about their police department.

Many of them want to get rid of the police chief. More than 300 people signed a petition asking the city to fire Chief James Boling.

They say he and his officers continually harass people. Boling was recently suspended for 10 days without pay. Monday, residents brought complaints to the council.

"We're tired," said Sarah Jackson, the petition organizer. "We're tired of being harassed by our own police department. They ain't doing the job."

Mayor Olan Faulk said he was tired of the problems. He made an executive decision without the rest of the council. Faulk said the next officer who has a complaint filed against him will be immediately suspended.
