Park Police chief announces retirement
The chief of the United States Park Police has announced her retirement.
Chief Teresa Chambers said Thursday she plans to retire on Dec. 5, her 35th anniversary in law enforcement. She said it’s time to pursue new opportunities. Chief Chambers took over the Park Police in February 2002 but was dismissed two years later after speaking out in a newspaper interview about a lack of staffing and funds for her agency. She was ultimately reinstated in 2011 after a long legal fight.
