Salmerón noted Carlson has been with the department since 2011.
Carlson said the resignation was a good thing and he has been honored to serve the village. He called Yellow Springs “a wonderful place.”
“This is a good thing for me personally, strictly a personal decision, and a family decision,” Carlson said.
Carlson said he is not sure what he will do next, but he is looking forward to the next chapter.
Salmerón said he would begin looking for the next village police chief and will seek citizens’ assistance to join the search committee.
