Roll Call is reporting that “U.S. Capitol Police Chief Kim C. Dine has submitted a letter of resignation to the Capitol Police Board, multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation have confirmed.”
As Breitbart News reported earlier this week, Dine’s tenure as Capitol Police Chief has been troubled.
Dine’s failure to release the Capitol Police event report of the New Year’s Day incident in which then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid(D-NV) sustained gruesome injuries is just the most recent controversy in which Dine has been involved.
As Roll Call reports:
Dine’s stated intent to leave the agency comes at a moment when frustrations have come to a head, not just from rank-and-file officers but from the Capitol Police Board. The board made the decision to hire the former police chief from Frederick, Md., in December 2012, confident he could restore trust and accountability in the ranks after long-simmering discontent with Dine’s immediate predecessors in the top brass.
