"I can honestly say that I am leaving OPD in a much better place than when I arrived. I have every confidence they will continue to move in the right direction," he wrote.

However there have been concerns from village board members about Uhl's leadership following his handling of a stop of a juvenile in September,the Oregon Observer reported.
