BCN — Richmond Police Chief Allwyn Brown’s resignation was announced Tuesday evening by Interim City Manager Steve Falk.

The announcement comes less than one week after Richmond Police Officers Association President Ben Therriault announced the results of a no confidence vote in the chief.

The vote found that 86 percent of the department’s rank and file officers found Brown’s leadership was contributing to an acrimonious relationship with management.
