Former Virginia Police Chief Dana Waldron sent a letter to the Northland's Newscenter today regarding his suspension from duty and the investigation into allegations of wrongdoing.
Here is his letter:
The City of Virginia offered a separation agreement and it is in the best interest of my family and me that I accept this agreement.
The agreement stipulates that I will retire from the police department on July 1, 2011.
It further stipulates that I am not able to make any comments about the recent investigation done on myself.
I do believe in due process and was willing to go forward with a civil service hearing however the separation agreement speaks for itself.
I want to thank everyone for all of the calls, comments and letters of support that I have received over the past several months.
They will always be treasured.
I will not be available for further comment until after June 19 because of a previous commitment.
