Chief Larry Hall is retiring next month after leading the Buckeye Police Department for a decade.
Hall’s retirement will be effective Jan. 20, officially marking 10 years of serving as head of the department, the city announced Thursday.
During his tenure, Hall worked with department members and city officials to increase staffing, modernize police policies and practices, earn accreditation for the department and public safety communications center, and implement technology to improve officer response and safety to meet the needs of the rapidly growing community.
Hall began his career with Buckeye police in 2006 and earned the role of chief in 2014. With his retirement, Hall concludes a law enforcement career of 33 years and looks forward to exploring new challenges.
Deputy Police Chief Robert Sanders will serve as interim police chief until mayor and council designate a permanent placement.
