The Oelwein police officer who accused a fellow officer of peeking in his daughter’s window has resigned from the force. Lieutenant Mark Fippen, an 18-year veteran of the Oelwein police department, submitted his resignation this week. Fippen had accused then-officer Jeremy Logan, who recently was appointed police chief, of looking into his daughter’s window about two years. Logan contended he was conducting surveillance of a nearby convenience store. Logan was fired from the force, but reinstated following a civil service commission hearing. Logan was appointed police chief by the Oelwein city council two weeks ago. He then moved Fippen, who was working the drug task force, back to regular uniform patrol duties. In his resignation, Fippen said he would not work for someone he does not respect. The Oelwein police force is now short three police officers.
