Police Chief Bob Herman Retiring

Thunder Bay's Police Chief is calling it quits.  Bob Herman announced today that he's planning on retiring effective July 7th next year.  Herman says he's been in discussions with the police services board since September and his decision has nothing to do with Keith Hobbs being elected as Mayor.  Hobbs has been highly critical of Herman's opinion on safety in the city.  In the press release Herman says he feels extremely privileged to have served the community over his 30 plus year career.  Meanwhile Hobbs wishes Herman the best and says he has been a very dynamic officer during his career.
