Nice Out As Akron Police Chief

Akron Police Chief James Nice has stepped down after Mayor Dan Horrigan requested his resignation.

A statement released by the City of Akron Sunday evening did not specify a reason for asking Nice, who had served as Chief since 2011, to leave his post. More answers are expected at a press conference scheduled for Monday at 12:30 p.m. James Hardy, Horrigan's Chief of Staff, declined further comment pending the press conference.

Nice served in the FBI from 1985-2011 before joining the Akron Police. He is a graduate of Kenmore High School and the University of Akron.

Horrigan appointed Maj. Ken Ball to serve as Provisional Chief of Police.
