CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - The Casa Grande police chief, whose experience with the department spans more than three decades, is retiring.
Robert Huddleston recently submitted his notice of intent to retire. His last day will be March 31.
The Casa Grande Dispatch (http://bit.ly/P2wO6l ) reports that Huddleston joined the police department as a patrol officer in 1980. He has served as police chief since 1998.
The city plans to hire an agency to recruit candidates to fill the position before Huddleston leaves.
City manager Jim Thompson says that will allow for a smooth transition.
Huddleston says the new chief will have a solid foundation to build on and is confident the department will become stronger.
