HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Victim Advocate Garvin Ambrose will resign July 18 after holding the post for nearly a year and half to return to his hometown of Chicago.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Ambrose’s resignation Thursday and said Ambrose is accepting a “new professional opportunity” in Chicago. Malloy appointed Ambrose as victim advocate in February of last year, and he was later confirmed by the legislature.

Officials didn’t disclose Ambrose’s new job. Ambrose declined to comment Thursday.

Before taking the victim advocate’s job, Ambrose was executive assistant state’s attorney and legislative liaison in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in Illinois.

The victim advocate is an ombudsman between crime victims and the criminal justice system and also evaluates state services for victims.
