University of Cincinnati Police Chief Anthony Carter is resigning.

Lt. Col. Maris Herold is the interim UCPD chief.

UC says Carter resigned Nov. 23. He'll stay on as a member of the University's Institute of Crime Science, part of the School of Criminal Justice.

Carter is also applying for the top police position in Fairfield.
