LPD Chief Lisa Womack resigned today. Womack's resignation is effective May 1. The chief's resignation comes only two (2) days after a "no confidence" vote by employees of the Lakeland Police Department. This comes after a scandal filled year at LPD including sexual misconduct, "bra-shaking" searches of females, my DUI case where issues with the police reports being notarized even though the reports were blank, the arrest of an LPD officer on charges he sexually abused and stalked a woman while on duty, and a grand jury investigation into problems with Womack and the department's handling of public records. Chief Womack cited the resignation was in the best interest of herself and her and her family. A nationwide search will begin to find her replacement.
Hopefully, the community's confidence can be restored in the Lakeland Police Department in the future.
