It is with great regret that the City of Clearwater announces that Police Chief Bill Hisle has submitted his intent to resign as Police Chief effective mid to late October. Chief Hisle stated ongoing health issues and concerns led him to make this very difficult decision.
Chief Hisle has been with the City since December 2015 and during his tenure been an outstanding representative of law enforcement and the City of Clearwater. He has overseen several improvements and upgrades to the department including helping set up an equipment and vehicle replacement schedule and increased officer training. His leadership and guidance will be greatly missed by the staff and citizens of Clearwater and we wish him the best of luck as he begins the next phase of his career.
City staff will be forming an interview/hiring committee in the near future to begin the search for a new Police Chief.
