New Franklin Police Chief To Step Down
The New Franklin Police Chief is announcing plans to step down.
In a Facebook post yesterday Mike Wise said the city decided to cut his staff and only have 2 full time officers.
He went on to say in April of 2019 they lost a full time officer and with the financial crisis the city elected not to fill that position, leaving a patrol to him 24/7.
Wise told the New Franklin City Council he had been offered a conditional offer of employment elsewhere, and as soon as his background check is complete, he plans to resign.
Wise has been the police chief for around 5 years.
