MIAMI - Opa-locka Police Chief Scott Israel has resigned his position with the city.
The official announcement will be made during an 11 a.m. press conference on Friday.
Israel has been Opa-locka's police chief for 13 months. Just last month, he did an exclusive interview with CBS News Miami's, touting how proud he was of the department and the work they have been able to accomplish in just one year.
Prior to taking the job with Opa-locka, Israel was fired as Broward sheriff by Governor Ron DeSantis after being suspended following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
It was a move that Israel said he strongly disagreed with.
