Village of Oakley ordered to give up names of officers

A Michigan agency that sets training standards for police departments wants the names of reserve officers in a Saginaw County community and any information about donations.
The demand was made in a July 15 subpoena by the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards. It wants information from Oakley, which has a population of 300 but a reserve police force estimated at 100.
Police Chief Robert Reznick says some reservists have never been to the village but they're prepared to help if needed. He says some have made donations to Oakley.
A reserve officer can carry a concealed weapon to places that typically ban weapons.
Oakley has refused to release names of reserve officers to the public, a decision that was upheld by a judge.
