LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Little Rock Police Chief Stuart Thomas says he is retiring.

Thomas started with the Little Rock police 35 years ago and has been chief since 2005.

City Manager Bruce Moore says Thomas led the agency through an expansion of public safety programs that were possible, in part, because of a voter-approved sales tax increase.

Moore says crime rates have dropped under Thomas‘ leadership.

Thomas is to stay on the job until June. Moore says he’ll announce a plan in the next few weeks for selecting a new chief.
