The police chief and the entire police force of Kimberling City, Missouri have resigned, leaving the city of approximately 2,500 people without any police protection.

Reasons range from the pay rate to not having the proper tools, to having no police clerk and better opportunities elsewhere, according to Fox News.

"It will be a struggle to fill the police department back up with qualified officers, but hopefully they can start working on that soon and get that accomplished," Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said of the resignations.

Police Chief Craig Alexander was first to announce his resignation, on August 23, saying that he wanted a chance to better himself and that he had accepted another position in Branson West, a town about six miles down the road.

The entire Kimberling police department has resigned. It is due to anti-police sentiment by activists and politicians.
