Devon and Cornwall police has lost its second boss in just over a month after ongoing pay disputes.
Assistant chief constable Caroline Winter will take up a training post at the Central Police Training and Development Authority.
The announcement follows an investigation into pay cut proposals by former chief constable Maria Wallis.
Wallis resigned in July after authorising proposals to cut hundreds of officers’ salaries.
Wallis said her early retirement was “the right thing to do for the people of Devon and Cornwall”.
The force said the pay review had been designed to ensure staff were paid fairly.
