Henderson police chief, deputy chief voluntarily leaving positions

The Henderson police chief and deputy chief are voluntarily leaving their positions, the city of Henderson announced Thursday.

City Manager Bob Murnane announced a change in the employment status of former Henderson Police Chief Patrick Moers and former Deputy Chief Bobby Long:

“As of today, both former Police Chief Patrick Moers and former Deputy Chief Bobby Long have voluntarily separated from the City of Henderson,” Murnane said.

Moers had been put under an internal investigation and removed from his post in mid-May.

Todd Peters is the acting police chief. Henderson officials said Peters has 24 years of experience on the job in Henderson.

Peters was named to the job by the City Manager on May 18 and will remain in that role until further notice.

The deputy chief position left vacant by Long’s departure remains unfilled at this time.
