Colo. town gets help after sole officer resigns

The Associated Press

GREELEY, Colo.- Weld County sheriff's deputies and officers from other nearby law enforcement agencies will help patrol the town of Gilcrest after its only police officer resigned this month.

Town officials have not released the reason for James Neily's resignation.

Town Trustee Karla Castro said the police committee has interviewed five candidates for police chief.

Former Chief Scott Smith resigned in November, becoming the fourth chief in two years to leave the department. Sgt. Dean Sackos also left the department recently, telling the town board it was micromanaging the police department. Sackos also said he was owed for up to 60 hours of overtime work.

Gilcrest, a town of 1,162, has always had a police department, and Castro said officials hope to continue to have officers.
