19 Action News Reporter Scott Taylor broke the story that Cuyahoga County Sheriff Bob Reid officially handed in his resignation Thursday after being asked to do so by Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald.

In 2009, Reid was brought into the Sheriff's Office to improve and professionalize the office after a corruption scandal, involving former sheriff, Gerald McFaul.

Frank Bova, a longtime leader in public safety and former Interim Sheriff of Cuyahoga County, will serve as Interim Sheriff while a selection process for the new Sheriff is completed.

"The County is at the mid-point in my administration and we are taking the time to review all of our leadership across all departments," says Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald.

"After two years of work, it provides an opportunity for members of the leadership team and our administration to see where things stand and to make decisions in order to make our government work effectively as possible," says FitzGerald.

"The halfway point of the administration often results in personnel changes - Clerk of Courts Gerald Fuerst decided to announce his retirement from public service last week, and other potential leadership changes may be announced in the near future," says FitzGerald.

 Sheriff Reid sent the following memo out to county employees:

County Executive Ed FitzGerald has asked for my resignation effective the end of January 2013. It has been my honor to lead this organization for the past 3 1/2 years. I believe I'll leave this organization much better than when I first took office and will value the friendships I've made.
Thank you for your dedication and keep up the fine work.
Sheriff Bob Reid
