CHESAPEAKE, Va. - After a 40-year career with the Chesapeake Police Department, Police Chief Kelvin L. Wright will retire at the beginning of August.
Wright's last day will be August 1, according to a release from City Manager Christopher Price.
Wright served as Chesapeake's police chief for 14 years.
"While my journey with Kelvin has been relatively brief, to say we’ve been through a lot together is an understatement! I’ve learned so much from him, have benefitted greatly from his leadership, and I am truly honored to have served with him," Price said in a statement.
Wright's retirement was announced and shared with city staff last week.
