Roy Police Chief Resigns

ROY, Utah (ABC 4 UTAH)- A surprising resignation is prompting a lot of questions. After 29 years with the Roy Police Department, Chief Greg Whinham resigned Tuesday night.

We’re getting very few details about the resignation of Chief Whinham. We do know that the chief resigned in a lengthy resignation letter thanking the people of Roy and saying that he has no regrets.

“All I can say is that he made his decision last night {Tuesday night},” said Roy City Manager Chris Davis.

In a phone interview, Roy City Manager Chris Davis would give little insight into what led the 29 year police veteran to step down. Earlier this month, Whinham was placed on administrative leave. Rumors swirled about anonymous emails and possible foul play. Davis declined to comment about those allegations.

“I’m not going to comment on that,” said Davis.

The man who was once the face of a police department left his final words in a written statement that Davis sums up.

“You had a dedicated police chief and we have a very professional police department and they're moving ahead in serving the citizens of Roy,” said Davis.

The city manager says the department will move forward. Deputy Mike Elliott will serve as acting chief until a permanent replacement takes over as chief. ABC 4 Utah left two messages with Whinham, but we have yet to hear back from him.
