According to CBS17, the entire staff of the Kenly Police Department resigned yesterday. The town’s former chief of police said the officers did not want to be a part of the work environment that was created.

Chief Josh Gibson says that he and four other officers submitted a two-week resignation notice around yesterday. Gibson also said that Utilities Clerk Christy Jones and Assistant Town Manager Sharon Evans also resigned. He added, “All of us are very heartbroken that it had to come to this.”

He also said that the officers could not perform their duties due to the environment that was created by the town manager, Justine Jones. Gibson did not elaborate on what the work environment is because attorneys are now involved.
