RED OAK — The city of Red Oak announced late Tuesday evening they have accepted the resignation of Chief of Police Craig Rudolph.

Chief Rudolph was appointed to the position in September 2007.

“Chief Rudolph is aware that despite improvements to the department, there are a number of pressing issues which must be resolved,” said Red Oak City Manager Todd Fuller. “While the review of these issues is ongoing the chief’s resignation allows us to move forward in addressing and resolving any outstanding issues as quickly as possible.”

The city will appoint an interim chief of police until a permanent replacement is named. Until an interim chief has been appointed, Lt. Boyd Brock will act as the officer in charge.
