Deputies, agents and officers are quitting in record numbers around the country, including some cases where entire departments walk out amid an anti-police narrative throughout the country.
Such was the case in Missouri recently, when Kimberling City Police Chief Craig Alexander put in his notice on August 23- after accepting another position elsewhere.
According to Fox News, Alexander told the town’s mayor that he wanted a change and to better himself. Also a lack of proper funding and not even having a clerk played in the decision.
Soon after, three officers and a sergeant took their leave as well.
Staffing, training, administrative and pay woes appear to be the top reasons for the mass departure.
“We’re looking for officers, we’re looking for a new police chief and I think we’ll be fine,” Kimberling Mayor Bob Fritz said of the situation, noting that the local sheriff’s office would take over patrol duties until the agency could be re-staffed.
