WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro’s top safety officer is leaving.

Louis J. Brown Jr., Metro’s acting chief safety officer, submitted his resignation Friday. Brown has been in the role for the last six months following the departure of James Dougherty in September. Brown said in his letter to Metro general manager Paul J. Wiedefeld that he feels his “career has come to a crossroads where it is time to make a change.” The letter says his last day at the agency will be April 22.

Even before Brown’s resignation, Wiedefeld had said filling the position with a permanent person was a priority. Metro spokesman Dan Stessel says interviews with candidates had been set up for next week.

WRC-TV was first to report Brown’s departure.
