Rice U. Police Chief Resigns Amid Officer Termination Scandal

July 27, 2011  | 

Rice University Police Chief Bill Taylor and Major Dianna Marshall have resigned after they fired an officer who left campus to assist two Houston police officers involved in a shootout.

Officer David Sedmark was fired by Taylor and Marshall for leaving his assigned patrol area to respond to an officer down call a Greyhound bus station three miles from campus, the Galveston Crime Examiner reports. Since his firing, the university was denounced by local and statewide law enforcement organizations, as well as students.

Taylor will stay on the university payroll in a civilian capacity, and Marshall said she has plans to go back to college so she can one day be a police chief.
