Remaining Fyffe officers quit

FYFFE, AL (WAFF) -

The entire police force in Fyffe walked off the job and now they're being replaced.

Late Monday afternoon, the last two remaining officers at the Fyffe Police Department resigned.

The relationship between the mayor and the police department has been strained ever since two officers were fired earlier this year.

The situation reached a breaking point Monday. One officer took a position with the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department, and the chief quit Monday morning.

Mayor Katy Woodall said she's hired a new officer and he will be assuming the role of acting chief effective immediately.

She said part time officers and the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department are stepping in to keep the peace.
