Sheridan Police Chief Mike Card announced his resignation to the Mayor and his staff on Friday. Card will finish out the year with his last day being December 31st.
Card has accepted an offer to become the Chief Of Police in Capitola, California. He had spent over 30 years at the Capitola Police Department before retiring in 2005 to become Police Chief in Sheridan.
Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey says the search for a new chief will begin almost immediately.
In response to recent events, Kinskey says City Hall has received hundreds of compliments on the police department.
The City of Capitola made only one offer and if Card’s return is approved by their city council he will have a 3-year contract worth more than $140,000 per year. Card is due to start his new position on January 4th.
