ANDERSON, Ind. — The chief of the Anderson Police Department has been removed from his position.

According to a release, Tony Watters was removed by Anderson Mayor Thomas Broderick Jr. following a June 7, 2019 interaction with the Indiana State Police.

Broderick said that after receiving a report of the interaction on Monday, Oct. 7, he deemed removing Watters from the job to be the best course of action.

Watters’ last day on the job will be Sunday, October 13.
