Top cop leaves at week's end

September 22, 2004

Albany-- Police Chief Bobby Johnson's last day on the job will be Friday.

Johnson was facing possible termination for breaking police policies when hiring at least nine officers. Monday, he asked for early retirement effective January first.

Wednesday afternoon, City Manager Janice Allen Jackson released a statement saying Johnson must leave Friday.

Jackson says she's still deciding who will lead the department until a new chief is hired. A search is already underway for Chief Johnson's replacement.
