The No. 2 official in the Tulsa, Oklahoma sheriff’s office resigned on Monday after documents were released accusing him of intimidating employees to promote a white reserve deputy who later killed an unarmed black man, according to the Tulsa World newspaper.
Undersheriff Tim Albin’s resignation, which will be effective at the end of the week, was announced by Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz during a board of commissioners meeting, the newspaper reported.
“Given the gravity of the current situation … he agreed that maybe it’s time for a change,” Glanz said. “I will continue to examine my organization, and there will be more changes in the coming days as I work to restore the integrity to the Sheriff’s Office which the public has come to expect.”
