Longview Police Chief Resigns

The city of Longview will now be looking for a new chief of police.  Police chief A.J. Key has decided to resign. The mayor, city manager and council members were informed Thursday Key is turning in his resignation, and his last official day will be October 20th.

K.L.T.V. spoke with Key earlier this evening who told us he had accomplished everything he wanted to in Longview and it was time to move on. Often embattled with the police officers association over manpower issues, Key goes out after holding the top job for four years.

An interim chief has not been named.
