GRIDLEY, Calif. - The Gridley Police Chief’s job could be on the chopping block. On Monday, the city council could vote whether to fire Police Chief Dean Price.

Council Member Chris Williams put the chief’s possible firing on the agenda Monday night.

Price is an “at will employee” meaning the council could let him go any time with or without cause.

Action News Now spoke to one person who says she’s shocked about this.

“Absolute utter shock. Being the daughter of a retired police chief and having this happen to attack him, his family, our local law enforcement is an utter shock,” said Ricki Donnahoe, a resident of Biggs.

Action News Now also tried to reach out to people who are in favor of discussing the matter but did not get feedback on that.

Action News Now has also reached out to Councilman Williams, but haven’t heard back.

Corporal Tyler Johson with the Gridley-Biggs Police Department says the chief may state his case at the council meeting Monday at 6 p.m. (645 Kentucky St, Gridley).

Price has been the Gridley-Biggs Police Chief since January 2014 but was an officer with the force for many years.
