Chief Wray resigns

MESSAGE FROM CITY MANAGER MITCH JOHNSON


 


GREENSBORO, NC (January 9, 2006 10:20a) – At 8:30 this morning, Chief David Wray announced his resignation as Police Chief.  He has issued a statement, which I understand that the press has received.


     I have appointed Assistant Chief Tim Bellamy as the acting Chief effective immediately. I have complete faith in Chief Bellamy and have given him the full authority of the Chief including the ability to make or effect the following employment decisions: promotions, demotions, transfers, terminations and suspensions.


     Due to state personnel laws, this is all that I can share with the press at this time. 


     Thank you for your patience.  It is critical to all involved that we take the time necessary to do the right thing in the right way.

The last sentence is a bit cryptic to me.  But then again, this whole episode has been strange in the way it has unfolded.  Update: The N&R has a little more including Wray’s press statement.
