A Titusville police officer who fired his weapon at a car during a January police chase has resigned.

In a release by Titusville Police Department (TPD) today, Chief Dustin LeGoullon said that the officer was no longer employed in the city following an investigation by the department. LeGoullon said that the officer resigned on Monday.

The City of Titusville will not be releasing the names of the officers involved in the chase, and as such, it is presently unknown which officer resigned.

The resignation comes after an investigation by Corry-based State Police and the Crawford County Office of the District Attorney concluded on March 6 that neither the office who fired his firearm, nor his partner who was also involved in the chase, performed any actions that warranted charges during the chase, which took place on Jan. 28.

TPD was allowed by the district attorney’s office to conduct their own internal investigation, beginning Feb. 20, which led to the officer’s resignation.

“This action is not a reflection of or a disparagement to the investigation that was completed by the Pennsylvania State Police Corry Barracks,” LeGoullon said in the release. “It was an in-depth look into the actions and statements that were made by the officers.”

A full story shall be printed in the Thursday edition of The Herald.

    Something is rotten in Titusville. If no charges against the the officers were made then why was there a need for an officer to resign? I'm counting on the Titusville Herald to get to the bottom of this. Come on Herald... don't let me down!
