'ORLANDO, Fla. — The police chief in the city where Trayvon Martin was shot is set to permanently step down from his post after enduring strong criticism of his department's decision not to arrest George Zimmerman.
City commissioners – who previously gave Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee a vote of "no confidence" – must approve the resignation before it can formally take effect. They were set to take a vote on it Monday afternoon.'
