Port Hueneme Police Chief Resigns

Posted on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 12:42am


Port Hueneme’s Police Chief has resigned, weeks after the City placed her on paid administrative leave.

In a settlement agreement, Kathleen Sheehan stepped down on December 4th, and reached a deal to receive $75,000 to settle her contract, as well as $15,000 compensation for leave, and the payment of benefits like health care through next June.

The agreement says the city hired an investigator to look into allegations of the violation of some city policies by the Chief, but the findings were never adjudicated in administrative proceedings. The document says the investigation looked into issues like her handling of concealed weapons permits, as well as her communications with city officials, as well as the handling of a parking ticket.

Sheehan had been Port Hueneme’s Police Chief since September of 2010. She was the City of Bishop’s Police Chief for three years, and before that had been with the Los Angeles Police Department for 25 years.
