The chief of Roy's police department announced his resignation Wednesday, two weeks after reports of a probe into unspecified allegations against him surfaced.
Chief Greg Whinham's resignation was effective immediately, and Deputy Chief Mike Elliott will serve as acting chief while the city seeks a permanent replacement, according to Roy City Manager Chris Davis. Davis declined to say whether Whinham's resignation had anything to do with the recent anonymous allegations against him.
The city put Whinham on paid administrative leave while it had the Layton City Attorney's Office investigate allegations about the chief that the city began receiving through anonymous emails. Davis also declined to say what that investigation turned up.
