CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The executive director of the Charlottesville Police Civilian Oversight Board has resigned.

The city announced on Wednesday that Hansel Aguilar resigned effective Oct. 21.

He has been serving as the board’s first executive director since last year.

According to a release, Aguilar worked to update the ordinance for the board in December, getting the board more supervision of the Charlottesville Police Department through the ability to receive, investigate and issue findings on complaints made by civilians toward police.

"We thank Mr. Aguilar for his service to the PCOB and wish him success in his new role as the Director of Police Accountability with the City of Berkley, California," said Interim City Manager Michael Rogers. "Charlottesville continues to be dedicated to the goals and ideals of civilian oversight to ensure transparent and accountable policing in our community. We look forward to continuing this work, and plan to engage in an appropriate search for a new Executive Director.”
