    One-man police force protects small Michigan town

    The entire township police department is in the patrol car on this morning, rolling down the long roads that crisscross the countryside.The chief is there, along with the detective and the traffic cop. Not to mention the fire investigator and the code enforcement officer.And only one guy is in the car.Mark Schmitzer is a jack-of-all-trades. He has to be. He's the only man on the one-man police force in Gaines Township, a rural stretch of farmland just south of Flint, home to about 7,000 people.

    A lot of small towns in SC are one-man jobs. They kinda do everything from stopping out of town motorists to delivering the mail to city hall to acting as bill collectors for the water dept. Some even do maintenance for the town. One job does all.
