Ron Schleuter turned in a letter of retirement to the mayor’s office this morning, notifying Jamie Mayo that he intends to end his career as chief August 7th.
In a response to Schleuter’s letter, Mayo rescinded the disciplinary action against Schleuter, and halted any further investigation into Chief Schleuter.
Schleuter’s attorneys say that he will retire with full pay
and benefits, with a “distinguished” career of 30 years of service to the city
Attorney Brian Crawford tells NBC 10 that there were negotiations between Schleuter and Mayo after a court order that halted the disciplinary action.
The city agreed to take back Schleuter’s demotion to captain, and to terminate the investigation process, and take back disciplinary action against the chief.
