2nd Burlington officer resigns over social media scandal

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The head of the Burlington Police Department says a deputy police chief who used a fake social media account is resigning, nearly two months after the former police chief resigned for the same reason. Current Chief Jennifer Morrison said Monday that the city had reached an agreement with Jan Wright that will be effective on Feb. 21. Morrison said recent concerns about Wright’s use of social media “have become an impediment to how we interact and maintain trust with important segments of the Burlington community.” Former Chief Brandon del Pozo resigned in December over using a fake social media account to heckle a critic.
