Police chief steps down after deal on settlement

The Cincinnati Enquirer datel LAKESIDE PARK - A longtimepolice chief's temporary leave of absence is now permanent.

        Lakeside Park and Crestview Hills agreed to a financial settlement with Fred Anderson, chief of the police authority that patrols both cities. The terms were not disclosed.

        After working out the deal, Chief Anderson resigned. He'll stay on leave with pay until the resignation is effective Sept. 30, said Steve Wolnitzek, an attorney who orchestrated the resignation plan.

        “He just called me and said he was having some personal issues,” Mr. Wolnitzek said Wednesday. “He wanted me to talk to the board to work out a settlement for him.”

        Chief Anderson has been with the department 19 years, but had only 10 years in the state pension system. That made him unable to access any of those benefits, the lawyer said.

        He therefore wanted another financial agreement, and the cities' police authority board agreed to provide it.

        The chief “was happy with what we were able to resolve,” Mr. Wolnitzek said.

        Chief Anderson's leave of absence was approved July 21 by the authority board. The terms of that were worked out in a closed-door session.

        Mayors of both cities said at the time they did not know how long that leave would last.

        They said the Kentucky Police Officer's Bill of Rights prevented them from disclosing anything about the matter.

        Sgt. Paul Herbst, a retired Kentucky State Police trooper, remains acting chief.
