Wymore Police Chief No Longer Employed, City says

wymore-neWYMORE, Neb. (AP) — City officials say Russell Kirkpatrick no longer is chief of the Wymore Police Department.

A news release signed by Mayor Daniel Guenther says Kirkpatrick’s last day as chief was Wednesday. The release says there won’t be any further comment about the situation, “because this is a personnel matter.”

It’s unclear whether Kirkpatrick resigned or was fired. City offices are closed for the holiday.

The city of around 1,400 people is in southeast Nebraska’s Gage County.
