The chief of the Minneapolis Park Police has been fired, but it's not yet clear why.
Chief Bradley Johnson was let go Monday. His attorney confirms the firing to the Star Tribune.
Johnson took over the department in July of 2001 after spending 25 years with the Minneapolis Police Department.
WCCO-TV reports Lt. Linda Bergstrom will take his place, effective immediately.
The department is charged with providing safety and security in the city's 170 parks.
