Police Chief Wayne Scott announced he would retire in an online video shared with staff. In the post, he says things at the department will remain the same between now and his last day, January 31, 2020.

In a press conference today, Chief Scott indicated that he’s given a long notice to allow time to find the right candidate and for a smooth transition.
