Valdosta Chief of Police Frank Simons announces retirement

VALDOSTA — Valdosta Chief of Police Frank Simons has announced his retirement from the City of Valdosta, effective Jan. 1, 2013, following 17 ½ years of public service “to protect and serve” the city of Valdosta and its citizens.

 

In June 1995, Valdosta City Manager Larry Hanson—then interim city manager—hired Chief Simons as one of his first tasks in office and at a time when the city department was without a chief and was facing many challenges.  Chief Simons rebuilt the department and restored the trust and confidence of the community. Under Chief Simons’ leadership and with strong mayor and council support, the VPD regained credibility with state and federal agencies and became state certified and nationally accredited within just five years.
