LAKELAND, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Lakeland Police Chief Lisa Womack has tendered her resignation following a turbulent year for the police agency.
City Manager Doug Thomas made the announcement in a news conference Friday afternoon.
Earlier this week, the majority of police officers and department employees indicated in a straw poll that they did not have confidence in Womack.
Womack came under fire over the last year during a large-scale sex scandal that involved more than a dozen officers and city employees.
Womack's resignation is effective May 1st.
