REIDSVILLE, N.C. — Reidsville Police Chief Charlie Dennis has resigned his position to become the chief of police in Hanover, N.H.
Dennis’ resignation becomes effective on May 23. He has been with the City of Reidsville since October 2012.
Prior to serving as chief of police in Reidsville, Dennis served as the chief of police in Page, Ariz., for four years.
“Charlie has been a very responsive leader while here in Reidsville, listening to the needs of our citizens and officers,” said City Manager Michael J. Pearce. “He sat down with each officer to hear their concerns and suggestions when he first arrived. We hate to see him go, but we wish him luck as he accepts his next career challenge.”
In his resignation letter, Dennis wrote, “The Reidsville Police Department is staffed with professionals whose desire is to serve their community and provide good customer service. This has been a difficult decision due to the great staff at the police department.”
Dennis said it was also the warm and welcoming community that made it such a hard decision for him.
Pearce said he plans to name an interim police chief closer to the May 23 date.
