Medford, Ore. — After 38 years, the city of Medford’s most tenured employee, the Medford Police Department’s longest serving officer and the city’s current chief had his last day today.

Chief Tim George was hired as a patrol officer in 1977 and since then rose in the ranks before his promotion to police chief in 2011.

During that time MPD says George was instrumental in forming units like the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team and MPD’s Tactical Information Unit.

George announced his retirement towards the end of October and will formally retire tomorrow.

Interim City Manager Bill Hoke will appoint an interim chief.
