Jackson Township's troubled police chief is retiring from the department. The Akron Beacon Journal reports David Zink has filed paperwork to retire.
Zink has been on paid leave since April following allegations of inappropriate conduct with female employees.
A special prosecutor in the Stark County Prosecutor's Office is investigating the allegations. No charges have been filed.
Zink was first suspended without pay in November, after a female employee claimed he was engaged in sexual harrassment. David Zink denied the allegations as returned to work in February.
Jackson Township trustees placed Zink on paid administrative leave after the state decided to investigate the allegations.
Zink who has worked for the Jackson Township Police Department since 1986, was named chief in 2010.
