ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A long time leader in the Albany Police Department is about to retire.
Deputy Chief Wilma Griffin started as a patrol officer more than 35 years ago and worked her way through the ranks.
At the APD museum, she showed WALB the nine chiefs she's worked under and told us what she'll miss most.
"I would say the people I worked with," said Griffin. "I will still be involved in the community. That's some of the things I will miss."
Griffin will continue her at-risk program in the community. The public is invited to a retirement celebration at the civic center December 10th at 11:30 a.m.
