The town council of Winfield in northwest Indiana will meet Tuesday night to try to restore its police protection.

Lake County, Ind., sheriff Roy Dominguez told his deputies to stop responding to non-emergency calls because Winfield failed to pay the county the $100,000 yearly cost.

The sheriff added that state law requires the town of 4,000 to have its own police force.
