ODESSA - The town last had an active police chief present in late November. Police chief Leslie Jimerson's last day of employment was Friday, Nov. 25.

The news was shared with The Record-Times a few weeks after Jimerson's resignation due to the council not wanting a rise in crime.

"Our last officer quit and gave two weeks' notice, working only eight days out of the two weeks given," town clerk Meri-Jane Bohn said. "His family had relocated out of state, so he decided to join them."

When asked why the public was not immediately informed, Bohn cited council's concerns with public safety.
