The meeting on Tuesday afternoon went into executive session with Vail minutes after the meeting was called to order. The police jury later accepted Vail's resignation, which is effective April 8th. She will use vacation time until that date. 

President of the police jury, Louis Kent, told The Investigative Unit last week that Vail's behavior will not be tolerated. Police Juror Chris Hall and Vice President of the Police Jury Sean Smith say they believe Vail needs to go. Kent was the only juror who voted against accepting Vail's resignation on Tuesday.
