DAVIS: To retire as NLRPD chief.

North Little Rock Police Chief Mike Davis has announced his retirement.

“I believe for me it’s time to turn the page, start the next chapter,” Davis said in a statement. “Today I announce that effective March 1st I will be retiring from the place I love, the place I have seen so many grow both professionally and spiritually to make our department the best. Each of you made me, and had a hand in my success as Chief, for that I say thanks.”

Mayor Joe Smith has selected Assistant Chief Tracy Roulston to serve as interim chief while the city searches for a permanent replacement.
