Point Comfort Chief of Police Johnny Amador has resigned.

Amador joined the department as an officer in May 2008. He became police chief in 2009.

Amador plans to pursue job opportunities outside of law enforcement, said Marylou Valentine, assistant city secretary of Point Comfort.

"He was ready to move on," Valentine said.

Amador's last day was Sept. 7. The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office is providing extra coverage and patrols for the area until a replacement is found. The city is accepting applications to fill Amador's position
