This morning I met with our City's new Mayor to discuss the future of our City and the Police Department.
The conversation was good and during that conversation I offered to retire and remain involved as a consultant with the City of St. Louis to accomplish two things. First, to support our City and second to allow the new Mayor to begin to establish her own team.
I am optimistic and hopeful about the future of our City and our Police Department.
As I transition to my new role, I have the utmost respect for all of those who wear the badge and the uniform. It was my honor and pleasure to have led the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department for over four years and to have worn the uniform for 22 years.
