Vande Zande declined Channel 2's request for an interview. In his resignation letter, he says he will step down effective April 16. Vande Zande has little regard for Jim Baker, the private investigator.
He dubbed Baker's report the opinions of someone who has little regard for ethics or integrity.
"I make no apologies for the decisions I've made as your chief," he said.
The private investigator's report is expected to be released publicly later this month.
