TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima Community College's police chief is stepping down amid recent complaints from subordinates about her job performance.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that Chief Stella Bay resigned this week after allegations surfaced that she had poisoned officer morale to the point of imperiling campus safety.
Matthew Cline, executive director of an officers' union, said in a letter this month that the majority of campus officers had no faith in Bay and that she had created a hostile work environment.
PCC's Governing Board recently voted to extend Bay's contract as chief until June 2014.
Before coming to the college, Bay spent 31 years at Tucson Police Department, where she retired as a lieutenant in 2006.
