Leave hastened by letter of no confidence from force
Kimberley Johnson, Youngtown’s police chief since July 1, has been placed on administrative leave after all nine sworn officers on the town’s police force submitted a letter of no confidence.
The letter cited a hostile work environment, lack of leadership and emotional instability, as reported by the daily.
Johnson was the first woman in the town’s history to fill the top police spot. She is among a handful of female police chiefs in the state.
