COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The police chief of the University of Missouri in Columbia is retiring after more than four decades with the department.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (https://bit.ly/1CPnuwg) reports that 69-year-old Jack Watring’s last official day on the job will be June 1. But he’ll be leaving April 1, using leftover vacation for the next few months.

Watring, who has been chief since 2003, came to the department 44 years ago after two years with the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Watring says he and his wife have a second home at the Lake of the Ozarks that he plans to visit more often in retirement. And he plans to do more bass fishing with the Ozark Mountain Anglers club.

Maj. Doug Schwandt was appointed interim chief as of March 1.
