BUTLER CITY, Pa. – Local news media outlets are reporting that Ronald Brown, former Butler City Chief of Police, has resigned.
In his resignation letter sent to Mayor Ben Smith, Brown asked for his retirement from the department.
Mayor Smith forced Brown and Deputy Chief David Adam into paid administration leave, after multiple reasons were discussed at the FOP lodge meeting. Local newspaper, The Butler Eagle, has stated that one of the reasons for Brown and Adam to not be liked by the department was due to a lack of cooperation with local media outlets, such as ours. Daily on the scanner you could hear reporters calling 911 asking to speak to the Chief of Police.
It is unknown when or if David Adam will resign from the department. He remains on paid administration leave.
