Head of Police Watchdog Agency Resigns

Kevin Allen, the head of San Francisco's civilian police watchdog agency said Thursday that he will resign his post, citing health problems. He said that he needs to be treated for the difficulties immediately and that the stress of his $100,000-a-year executive director's job may have worsened his health. His resignation comes before what is expected to be a scathing audit of his agency by the city controller's office. Among other things, Allen has overseen the Police Department’s investigation into the 2002 street fight involving both civilians and off-duty police officers. Some hearings in that case are still pending. Commission President Louise Renne said there will be an interim director appointed until a replacement for Mr. Allen has been selected
