Police Chief Diggs to step down at end of Bell’s termWritten by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Citing “irreconcilable differences in policing philosophy” with Mayor-elect D. Michael Collins, Toledo Police Chief Derrick Diggs has said he will retire at the end of Mayor Mike Bell’s term.
Diggs notified Bell and the executive staff of the police department of the decision on Dec. 12. His final day with the department will be Jan. 2.
“The chief will take the opportunity to pursue other professional law enforcement opportunities giving the Mayor-elect the opportunity to appoint a chief with whom he shares the same approach to policing strategy for Toledo,” according to a news release from the Bell administration.
