The City of Grand Rapids and its police chief have agreed to part ways.

A city councilor said the vote was unanimous at a meeting last Monday. Former Police Chief Jim Denny has been with the Grand Rapids Police Department since 1999.

The agreement states it is in the best interest of both parties to separate. The agreement said Denny was not terminated and there is no investigation or disciplinary action pending.

Denny talked with Eyewitness News Saturday and said there's no hard feelings. He just decided to move in a different direction and make a career change.

Denny has been on family medical leave. He said he has not decided if he'll stay in law enforcement or not.
