DECATUR-Chief Todd Walker will retire in September. The chief is a 28-year-veteran of Decatur Police and is retiring for personal reasons. He started as a patrol officer before working his way up to chief. City Manager Ryan McCrady says he will miss working with Walker. "He's been a great leader for the department, set a good example, put a tremendous amount of hours of work into planning and moving the police department to its new location, done a great job controlling the crime rate and responding to citizen needs," McCrady says. The city manager says he will appoint an interim police chief in the near future and hopes to hire the new police chief from within the department.
