SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - The city of Santa Ana’s police chief has resigned amid local political tensions and taken a job at the helm of the Bay Area Rapid Transit police.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/2pMbk53 ) that Chief Carlos Rojas resigned earlier this week following criticism by some elected officials over a rise in shootings in the city of 333,000 people.

Rojas on Friday announced he was taking a job as BART’S chief of police.

Rojas has worked in Santa Ana for more than two decades and served as the city’s police chief since 2014.
