Former River Forest police chief Frank Limon, who left the village in March 2010 to take the same position in New Haven, Connecticut, has resigned, according to NBC Connecticut.

Limon resigned for personal reasons, according to New Haven Mayor John DeStefano, and he'll continue to advise the department as a consultant for the remainder of the fiscal year for $90,000 under contract until June 30, 2012.

Limon was hired by River Forest in late 2008 during a period of turmoil, and public officials trusted him to chart a new path for the department. He helped create partnerships with neighboring police departments and was also credited with serving as a mentor.

Limon was named a Villager of the Year by the editorial board of this newspaper in 2009. Click here to read the Villager of the Year profile.
