Eudora Police Chief Grady Walker resigned his position with the Eudora Police Department on Thursday. Walker’s last day will be Friday Sept. 7.
In an exclusive interview with Eudorareporter.com, Walker would not answer specifics a as to why he resigned from the department.
“I left for personal reasons, and I’d like to leave it at that,” Walker said. Walker did state that he does not have a position with any other jurisdiction at this time.
“I plan on taking time to heal from my injury and then see where life is going to take me,” Walker told us.
Walker was recently injured in a fall at the Police Department. Walker is currently on medical leave but will be returning to work next week for the transition period.
