GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Chief Andrew Smith of the Green Bay Police Department has announced his retirement.

The Chief sent a heartfelt message on the police departments page on Tuesday.

In an interview with Local 5, Chief Smith says he always thought 5 years was a good time to leave and embark on a new adventure, but do something other than law enforcement.

He says his highlight of his time in Green Bay was the community.

Finishing up with 33 years in law enforcement, the Chief says he will be retiring on May 3, 2021 but he says he and his family will be staying in Green Bay.

The next Police Chief will be selected by the Police and Fire Commission and an Interim Chief will be assigned to fill the position until a candidate is found.
