Kansas City, Kansas Police Chief Terry Zeigler announced Wednesday afternoon he will retire on September 11, 2019 after 29 years of service with the department.
"It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Kansas City, Kansas and the men and women of the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department for the last four and a half years as chief of police," police,” Zeigler said in a news release.
This comes just over a month after protesters in KCK demanded for Zeigler to be fired for alleged negligence and corruption.
Zeigler is also being investigated for allegedly "double dipping." The Kansas Bureau of Investigation turned over the case to the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Attorney’s office back in May.
