Detroit police chief steps down amid probe
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing said Monday that the city's police chief has stepped down from his post after an investigation showed that he had been in a relationship with a subordinate.
"After a 25-year career with the Detroit Police Department, Chief (Ralph) Godbee has submitted a letter announcing his retirement, effective immediately," Bing told reporters.
Godbee had been on a 30-day suspension during the probe.
"There was no need to fire him," Bing said.
Interim Chief Chester Logan, a 38-year veteran, with continue to perform the duties of police chief, he added.
