Bush announces immediate resignation

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - West Palm Beach Police Chief Delsa Bush is waking up to very her last day on the job as the city's top cop.

It's been a very contentious week for the chief, and Thursday night, she announced her immediate resignation.

Bush announced earlier this week she would resign effective January 1. But Thursday, Bush said, her resignation would take effect immediately.

This week, Bush has been in a public disagreement with Mayor Jeri Muoio concerning a police radio system.

Thursday night, Muoio announced two captains would share the duties of chief while she conducts a nationwide search.

Bush was the department's first female African American officer back in 1983. She has been with the department for her entire career.
