Roswell Police Chief Dwayne Orrick on Administrative Leave, Resignation Pending

The city will not discuss the reason behind Orrick's departure.

Nearly three months shy of his two year anniversary with the city, Roswell Police Chief Dwayne Orrick is no longer with the Roswell Police Department, according to city officials.

Orrick was put on administrative leave with pay, pending his resignation on Wednesday, Oct. 31, Roswell Spokeswoman Julie Brechbill told Roswell Patch Thursday morning.

"The city does not discuss personnel issues with the media," she wrote in an e-mail.

Orrick has previously served as the public safety director and the police chief for the city of Cordele in south central Georgia.

Roswell Patch has reached out to Orrick for a comment. Will update this story when he returns the call.

Thanks for the additional insight to what most understand to be a nasty, political place to work, Mr Former Employee. It's always good to get an insider's opinion on such things.

Yes she was FIRED, not asked to resign she had no choice, just like Orrick and just like the last Deputy of Finance was given a choice to resign OR get fired. That's how Kay gets away without tarnishing her reputation-she gives you an ultimatum and it's always the same...resign with some bait attached to it or get fired. Either way YOU ARE FIRED!

The Mr. Orleans that I know has no such ego whatsoever (Wow!) Shocking statement about Mr. Orleans. Maybe you had 1 run in with him but he's not that kind of man. Jere Woods has done fairly well as Mayor of Roswell we cannot all agree on every single matter, but overall he's done well. Though he certainly needs to have a strong back to deal those vultures like Kay Love & some Council members who desire and envy the power his position holds and will do ANYTHING to have it.
