Maricopa police Chief James Hughes resigns after 2 years

James Hughes, the police chief for town of Maricopa, introduced on Wednesday that he plans to resign from the division.

Quinn Konold, a metropolis spokesperson, launched a written assertion saying Hughes notified town that his final day might be Sept. 15. Hughes, who has labored in legislation enforcement for 36 years, began with the Maricopa Police Department as a commander in 2012 earlier than being appointed to police chief in January 2021.

“I have made the difficult decision to move on from my position as Chief of the Maricopa Police Department,” Hughes mentioned within the assertion. “This is a community that continues to show unwavering support and respect for its police department and, as such, deserves nothing short of the highest standard of service.”

Konold instructed The Arizona Republic that Hughes didn’t give a purpose for his resignation or what he deliberate to do subsequent.
