Woodbine police chief resigns after 3 months

WOODBINE, Iowa (AP) — A western Iowa police chief has resigned after three months on the job.

The Daily Nonpareil in Council Bluffs reports that Woodbine Police Chief Scott Brammer stepped down effective Friday. Brammer declined to comment, except to say that he has taken a job as a security director for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Sioux City.

Brammer was hired as the city's police chief in March, after serving as an officer. He took over for Gary Dull, who had held the job since 2012.

The Woodbine City Council approved the hiring of Michael Jensen as interim police chief. Jensen will go through a six-month probation period before the council decides whether to hire him permanently.

Jensen has been an officer for the city for about four years.
