LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln’s police chief has announced he will retire next year.

Jim Peschong said Tuesday he will leave his top job at the end of February.

A representative for the mayor’s office says Peschong notified city officials Monday of his decision. Officials are still figuring out the search process for Peschong’s successor.

The 63-year-old Peschong joined the police department in 1975. The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1Pkoa2h ) he’s served in several roles and became permanent police chief in 2012.
