Rollingwood police chief to step down Sept. 16


Rollingwood Police Chief Max Westbrook is stepping down Sept. 16. Westbrook was an alderman before he resigned that position in October 2017 to become interim police chief and then police chief.

Alderwoman Wendi Hundley, who was appointed to replace Westbrook on the City Council, said Wednesday evening that City Council received a letter from Westbrook about his intent to resign. Hundley said the resignation will be discussed at Thursday’s council meeting.

Hundley said she expects council will appoint the interim chief and also discuss appointing an official chief.

Lieutenant Kristal Pompa is the assistant chief and will be considered for the interim position, Hundley said.
