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.
Davis has been with the NLRPD for 34 years.
