One of San Diego Police Department’s assistant chiefs is retiring by the end of the month, according to the police department.
Boyd Long will be going to work for Valley View Casino. He joined SDPD in 1985 and was promoted to assistant chief in 2008, where he oversaw patrol operations.
During his 28-year career with the force, Long has also served as a commanding officer, mobile field force coordinator and Central Division lieutenant.
He is expected to speak publicly about his retirement next week.
