Richwood is relying on state police and sheriff's deputies for law enforcement after dissolving its police department.
Johnson says he's working to restore the four-member police department.
The City Council's action came earlier this month.
Last week, state police arrested a former officer in the December theft of prescription pain pills from a police evidence room.
