The Chief Finance officer for Cleveland Police has resigned from the force, after being investigated for gross misconduct.
Anne Hall was due to face a disciplinary hearing, and had already been suspended.
It follows an investigation relating to the alleged misuse of public funds between June 2010 and October 2011.
Ann Hall is the third chief officer to have left Cleveland Police - two others have been sacked.
A spokesman for the force says this now brings to an end investigations into allegations of misconduct which centred on people who were previously at the head of the force.
