(GALVESTON) - A northern Indiana town will be depending on off-duty sheriff's deputies to provide law enforcement protection after its only law enforcement officer was fired.

Galveston Town Council President John Hart describes using three or four off-duty Cass County sheriff's deputies to patrol as an emergency stop-gap measure. The Pharos-Tribune of Logansport reports the town council voted Tuesday night to fire a marshal - the only law enforcement officer left in town. Galveston is 55 miles north of Indianapolis.

The council is scheduled to meet Monday to discuss the next steps in hiring a replacement.
