Wednesday, all the officers at the Chelsea Police Department quit their jobs.

According to reports, officers learned of a plan to fire the chief, and instead of waiting to be fired, they quit.

This comes weeks after the assistant chief quit after he said there was a hostile work environment between the police department and city officials.

Back in May, one officer almost lost his job after pulling over a business owner and officers said that incident is what created the hostile work environment.
