After 21 years of service to the Lovell Police Department, an individual many regard as the backbone of the organization, head dispatcher Ron Salyer has tendered his resignation. Salyer stated his reasons for leaving in the following message posted Hit Facebook.

"After being at the Lovell Police Department for 21 years, I have seen so many things change," wrote Salyer. "Personnel come and go. However, in the past six months I have seen some things go on that go completely against my grain. I have seen our amazing and respected police department be, from my vantage point, systematically dismantled. I have seen a Chief, Lieutenant, numerous part-time staff and yesterday our Sergeant leave due to lack of communication and support from the top.

"I have done everything within my ability to give our young officers some stability. However, I have had enough. I feel if I stay it is giving credibility to what is continuing to occur. Therefore, I have tenured my resignation to the Town of Lovell.

"This action does not change how much I love this town and the citizens, nor my love for the personnel that remains at the police department and town employees. I believe I have served with distinction, dedication and compassion for the past 21 years. I have strived to provide the most professional, dispatching/911 services.

"The decision did not come easily, but I am comfortable with my decision for my family and myself. I hope those that remain, who are great, dedicated, compassionate personnel can continue to weather the current political storm and will continue to be in my heart and prayers."

Other resignations are pending, but have not been announced publicly.
