Americus--  Police Chief Mike Yates will pin on his APD badge for the last time Tuesdsay.

He only served for three years, but the crime rate went down while officer productivity increased. During his tenure there was zero turnover in the department.

 Yates is taking a job as head of the new multi-county 911 Center.  "I like a challenge, and it's an opportunity to do something that nobody in the state of Georgia has done before, so hopefully I will be successful at it."

The 911 Center will be located in Ellaville and will serve seven counties. Lt. James Green will serve as interim Chief.
