(Taylorsville-AP) -- The city of Taylorsville has decided to keep its contract with the Salt Lake County sheriff's office rather than starting its own police department.

The contract is worth about four-point-four million dollars to Sheriff Aaron Kennard, who was hoping to keep his largest police-contract customer.

Taylorsville, home to about 58-thousand people, was considering the creation of its own police force when the county announced it would raise the fees for patrol and police protection. The suburb of Draper did drop its contract with the sheriff and has started its own force.
