Ferguson, MO (KTRS) Interim Ferguson Police Chief Andre Anderson will soon be heading back to Arizona.
Anderson has submitted his resignation effective December 2. Anderson was appointed by Interim City Manager Ed Beasley to a six month contract to implement long standing improvement in the Ferguson Police Department.
“I am grateful for the opportunity that allowed me to serve as Interim Chief of the Ferguson Police Department,” said Anderson. “My number one goal when I arrived in Ferguson was to regain the trust of residents and the Police Department. Many of our policing initiatives that have been implemented over the past few months will build a stronger relationship between the department and Ferguson residents.”
Prior to heading the Ferguson Police Department, Anderson took a leave of absence from the Glendale, Arizona Police Department where he served as a commander. He will resume that position upon his departure. A nationwide search for a permanent Police Chief will begin immediately.
Meanwhile, Friday is Beasley’s last day on the job. Beasley is leaving the north county community after De’Carlon Seewood was named as permanent City Manager on Tuesday.
Beasley has served in this position since June.
