SUNRIVER, OR -- Sunriver Police Chief Marc Mills has resigned, following a lengthy investigation. In December, the Sunriver Service District placed Mills on leave when the board became aware of an allegation that he had struck an officer while on duty. Mills was placed on Administrative Leave December 3, 2017.

While the district's investigation was not yet complete, Board Chair Jim Fister says Mills has agreed to resign under a negotiated separation agreement. He says that during the course of the district's administrative investigation, employees raised complaints causing the inquiry to expand, "Including allegations of other outbursts of temper, fears of retaliation and other inappropriate behavior inconsistent with the District's policies and standards."
In a statement issued Friday, Fister said, "Chief Marc mills is a good police officer. One of his most recognized sayings is that the rules apply to everyone, equally. And, I greatly respect that Marc recognizes this in making his decision." The district's investigation is concluded, due to his resignation.
