The city of Denton is losing three of its top law enforcement officials, including the chief of police.

Chief Lee Howell has resigned, effective Aug. 6, after six years in the role. He'll move to the top job in Saginaw, a northern suburb of Fort Worth. He was chosen for that job last month and will begin work sometime in August, according to a news release from the city of Saginaw.
