Edwardsville, IL (KSDK) - The mayor of Edwardsville, Illinois wants citizens to know the police department won't be affected by a federal investigation into the former chief.

James Bedell resigned from the position last week after his home and office was raided by the FBI and IRS.

In a statement Friday, Mayor Gary Niebur said Bedell is the sole focus of the investigation.

Niebur wouldn't comment on the investigation, but added the city has begun looking for a new police chief.
