Former IMPD Deputy Chief Resigns as Asheville Chief After Two Months

Chris Bailey is still an employee of IMPD and will return to the department as a captain next month.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WISH) — A former deputy chief with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has abruptly resigned his new post as chief of a North Carolina police department.

Chris Bailey left IMPD to become the chief of police in Asheville earlier this year.

He will be leaving his post after about two months on the job. A release from the city of Asheville says he will resign on Sept. 27 “for personal reasons.”

The city says Bailey’s resignation is not related to a misdemeanor charge from 15 years ago, saying the information was shared during the interview process.

IMPD says Bailey is still an employee of IMPD and that he “will be returning at his merit rank of captain at the beginning of next month.”
