ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of Albany's Deputy Police Chiefs is leaving for a job in New York.
Steven Haynes was just hired by APD nine months ago.
The 47 year old Haynes is taking a job in his home state.
His last day is December 31st, the same day Chief James Younger is leaving.
City Manager Alfred Lott said APD's leadership will not suffer.
Lott said "We have several other senior officials in APD who are capable of operating as interim Chief. I am not concerned about that at all."
Lott said he is finalizing strategy for executing the search for a new Police Chief Tuesday, whether to do the search with his personnel, or hire a head hunting firm.
