Albany --The days of reporting for duty are over for Dougherty County Police Chief Bill Kicklighter. His retirement doesn't take effect until February, but Kicklighter has months of un-used leave time he plans to use.

Even though he won't be in the office anymore, Kicklighter says he's only a phone call away.

 Chief Kicklighter said "I'll continue to wear a beeper until February 1st. And if he runs into any problems or anything major comes up, I'm subject to call."

Assistant Chief Jeremy French will head the Dougherty County Police Department's day to day operations until a new Chief is hired.
