NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - A North Augusta High School resource officer has resigned after allegations emerged of an inappropriate relationship with a female student.

According to officials, North Augusta Department of Public Safety officer Chris Wilson was suspended Dec. 16, the same day the department learned of the allegations and started the investigation.

The agency says Wilson started his employment as a public safety officer in February 2022 and resigned on Dec. 19.

Authorities released a photo of Wilson.

Due to the possible criminal nature of the complaint, North Augusta Public Safety asked the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to conduct an investigation.
