LOGAN, Utah — North Park Police Chief Ulysses M. Black announced his resignation to the mayors of North Logan and Hyde Park on Friday.

Black had been placed on paid administrative leave two weeks ago after his arrest for a DUI last month in Idaho. 

The Cache Valley Daily reports that North Logan Mayor Lyndsay Peterson and Hyde Park Mayor Bryan Cox stated in a letter that Black was stepping down for personal reasons. The letter also states that Black is planning to retire.

According to court documents, Black was pulled over in Fremont County, Idaho on June 18. After posting a $2,000 bail, he was released. He was charged with a single count of driving under the influence, which is a misdemeanor. 

Shortly thereafter, Black met to discuss the situation with the two mayors. It was in this meeting that Black was placed on paid administrative leave. 

According to the Cache Valley Daily, Black graduated from the police academy in 1994. He has worked in law enforcement for more than 27 years. During his time in law enforcement, Black has worked for the Willard City Police Department and the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office. 

The Cache Valley Daily also reports that Assistant Police Chief Justin Olsen will fill the role of police chief on an interim basis. 

Black joined the North Park Police Department in 2001 and became police chief in January 2020. 

He is scheduled to appear in court in Fremont County on Aug. 3.
