San Jose Independent Police Auditor Chris Constantin announced April 20 that he is resigning, three days after the Mercury News revealed his brother is a San Jose Police officer.
Ladies and Gentleman, After careful consideration and consultation with the community and my family, I have decided to withdraw from consideration for the position of Independent Police Auditor. In taking this action, I do so with the best interest of my hometown and my community at heart. San Jose has blessed me and my family, and I have always sought to serve this community with the utmost of integrity and highest personal standards. I was looking forward to serving the people of San Jose with fairness and integrity as the Independent Police Auditor, to serving ethically and honorably for years to come. I place the honor and integrity of San Jose ahead of myself. I hope that by taking this action, the Mayor and Council can ensure that the process for hiring the Independent Police Auditor is done in a transparent and fair process that reflects the importance of this critical position. Respectfully, Chris Constantin
