My impending retirement

I am announcing today that I will retire as Chief of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department on September 16, 2011. That will be the final day of my 32nd year with the department, and I will leave in compliance with the 32-years-of service mandatory retirement policy. In the mean time, I will work closely with the Board of Police Commissioners to make the transition to new leadership as smooth as possible. Thank you all so much for your support throughout the years, especially the last seven that I have been Chief. Serving alongside the incredible men and women of this police department has been one of my greatest honors.
