Rochester Police Chief resigns

Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La'Ron Singletary announced Tuesday that he will step down amid ongoing protests in the city in response to the death of Daniel Prude.

In a statement announcing his retirement reported by local media, Singletary said he has served the Rochester Police Department and the local community for two decades and decried "outside entities" he said have attempted to “destroy” his character as the department comes under scrutiny in the wake of Prude’s death.

“The mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude’s death is not based on facts, and is not what I stand for,” he said.
