Iowa Law Enforcement Academy Director resigns

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Director of the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy has resigned.

Gov. Terry Branstad accepted Penny Westfall's resignation on Tuesday and thanked her for her service.

"I want to thank Penny for her service to the people of Iowa and wish her well as she moves on to other opportunities," Gov. Branstad said in a written statement.

Westfall's resignation is effective April 1.

In 2010, Westfall came under criticism when police chiefs, sheriffs and deputies began questioning her leadership and management style.
