FOX23 found that 16 officers have left the Fort Gibson force since 2014.
The vast majority of those were under the past chief of police, and some say that was a different time, supporting the current chief.
Chief Yarborough has been in place since March of 2016. Two officers have been fired since then.
Yarborough and Carson declined to respond.
FOX23's Katie Higgins talked to those officers and a member of the board of trustees who ultimately decided their fate in the video above.
