LINDON, Utah (AP) -- The 13,000 residents of Lindon are now being served by their own municipal police department.

Lindon Police Chief Cody Cullimore is in charge of 15 full-time police officers.

The new police agency opened Tuesday. Cullimore was hired from Pleasant Grove, which had provided police service to Lindon for 25 years.

Lindon paid a half-million dollars in startup costs to make the change. The city has budgeted $1.7 million to run the police department for the first fiscal year and another $1.2 million to pay Orem to dispatch police, fire and ambulance services for Lindon.
