The Athens Police Chief has announced his upcoming retirement.

Chief Charles Ziegler will retire in December. According to Athens City Council members, City Manager Mitchell Moore notified them during a work session on Monday night.

Several city leaders and community members have questioned the police department’s recent “work performance standards” that call for officers making two traffic stops per shift. Channel 3 aired a story about the issue last week.
