Charlottesville police chief retires after report faults department

Charlottesville police chief retires after report faults department(Reuters) – The police chief of Charlottesville, Virginia, announced his retirement on Monday, about two weeks after a report faulted his department and others for failing to protect public safety during a white nationalist rally in August that turned deadly. On Dec. 1, a three-month review by former U.S. Attorney Timothy Heaphy blamed law enforcement agencies for breakdowns in planning and coordination, as well as a timid response, that led to “disastrous results.” Police Chief Al Thomas’ retirement was effective immediately, the city said in a statement. The University of Virginia is located in Charlottesville.
