GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The police chief of Green Bay says political differences played a role in his decision to leave the force after more than three decades with the department.

Chief Tom Molitor told the city’s Police and Fire Commission Thursday afternoon that he will retire at age 59. WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1BOle4E ) reports Molitor later said there was some difference of opinion on how to organize and run the police department. Molitor says he felt his effectiveness as a leader was impaired, so he’ll let someone else have a shot at the job.

The chief began working for the department in 1980, left in 2011 and returned in 2012 to serve as interim chief. He was appointed to the chief’s job the following year.

Molitor departs July 31.
