Sidney police chief resigns, effectively immediately

Posted: Updated:

In a surprise announcement this week, Sidney's Police Chief, Mike Brown has resigned.

Brown made the announcement at Tuesday's city council meeting.

City Manager Gary Person says the decision wasn't a complete surprise, but he will be sad to see Brown go.

Brown says the main reason for his departure is family health problems in his home state of Kansas.

Brown was only in his second year in the position and Person says he will look for the same qualifications in a replacement.

"The fact that he puts family first and having those kind of qualities and that kind of character to him is why we hired him in the first place so you certainly cant change that circumstance," says Person.

Person says a search for Brown's replacement will start immediately.
