Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Huff resigned


Former Kimball Police Chief Darren Huff’s last day as an employee of the City of Kimball was Thursday, Oct. 6, according to City Administrator Daniel Ortiz.

Huff tendered his resignation, dated October 7, 2016, and addressed to the Kimball Mayor and City Council, which reads in part: “It is with mixed emotions that I resign from the position of Kimball’s Police Chief. I am ready to move forward with the next chapter of my life and making more time for my family.”

The resignation letter alluded to two complaints that may have been forwarded to the Nebraska State Patrol for investigation. He added in the letter that after speaking with the investigators, his understanding was that the complaints were deemed unfounded.

Huff communicated his hope that the local department will remain community-oriented as well as his deep belief in Kimball as a community.

“I believe in Kimball and as such know when it is a proper time to step aside and let the next generation continue the mission with the right attitude to go forward seeking what’s best for the City of Kimball’s police service and protection,” the letter read.

“Captain Andy Bremer is currently serving as Acting Chief in the interim,” Ortiz stated.
