The Chief of Parker Police Department has resigned.
Almost 4 months after Chief Rodney Mendoza was placed on paid administrative leave in relation to accusations of harassment from the wife of a police officer, he tendered his resignation on December 11th.
Lorrie Thompson alleged in July 2013 that Mendoza was sexually harassing her, including by text message, by phone and in person. Mendoza fought the injunction against him in court and won, getting it dismissed for “lack of evidence”. He was placed on leave by the Parker Town Council in August.
The council will now vote on whether to accept his resignation at the regularly scheduled council meeting on Tuesday, December 17th. No word on whether an investigation by DPS or the Town has revealed any wrongdoing.
