The entire police force of Kimberling City, Missouri has resigned. Every single officer quit the force to find work elsewhere. The police chief and the officers claimed lack of support, defunding the police, and unqualified officers and applicants.
An entire Missouri police department, including the police chief and his officers, resigned leaving the city of Kimberling without immediate authority.
Citing problems like an inadequate pay rate and not having the right tools to do the job, the department has local leaders struggling to find replacements, especially when rhetoric against law enforcement is high amongst some, Fox News reported.
Personally, I think this is great. When people are constantly disrespected, ridiculed, and forced to work in unsafe conditions, they will eventually realize it’s easier to just find work somewhere else.
What preempted the mass exodus, according to Rader, was Kimberling City Police Chief Craig Alexander’s resignation on Aug. 23. He wanted changes from the town’s mayor and he wanted to better himself, Fox News reported.
Soon after, Alexander’s resignation was joined by three officers and a sergeant, with their reasons for quitting being the absence of a police clerk to assist the department, not having qualified officers in the department, and wanting new opportunities with a better pay rate, according to NBC Springfield, Missouri.

About 2,600 officers from New York retired in 2020, according to The New York Times, compared to the 1,509 who retired the year prior.
2,600 officers. Wow, that’s an amazing statistic, and it explains how much the NYPD despise Bill de Blasio and his gang of anti-cop leftists.
