SHEFFIELD LAKE, Ohio -- Police Chief Anthony Campo resigned Tuesday following an incident in which he left a “Ku Klux Klan” sign on a Black officer’s desk, Sheffield Lake Mayor Dennis Bring said.

Campo, who has been with the department for 33 years and served as chief for eight, is seen in the video walking into a room with a piece of paper in his hand that says, “Ku Klux Klan.”

He walks out of the room to wait for the officer, an unidentified Black man, to come into the room.

The officer, who started working for the department nine months ago, walks in and sees the message.

It is unclear what the officer and Campo say to one another as the video has no audio.

Sheffield Lake Law Director David Graves brought the incident to Bring’s attention Tuesday and characterized it to the mayor as “really serious.”.

He asked the chief not to touch anything, hand over the keys to his cruiser, and find a ride home. »
