HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

Former Police Chief Patrick Moers and Deputy Chief Bobby Long have "voluntarily separated" from the City of Henderson, according to a statement from City Manager Bob Murnane.

“Henderson residents can be confident in the new leadership of their police department. Acting Police Chief Todd Peters has 24 years of experience on the job in Henderson and the men and women of the Henderson Police Department are dedicated to protecting and serving our community. Our city’s leaders are 100 percent behind these highly-skilled law enforcement officers and we know how hard they work to keep Henderson families safe,” Murnane said in the release.

Moers was investigated for sending out a flyer to local businesses promoting a non-profit foundation. For more information on the situation, click here.
