Madras Police Chief Tanner Stanfill has resigned after serving with the department for 22 years.
Stanfill has been on medical leave since July. When his leave needed to be extended, the city council appointed retired Milwaukee Police Chief Steve Bartol to help in his absence.
Recruitment of a new police chief is planned to start as soon as possible, with Bartol’s help.
