Veteran Va. police chief to retire

The police chief of Virginia's largest city is retiring.

Virginia Beach Police Chief A.M. "Jake" Jacocks Jr., announced his decision Monday. Jacocks says he's leaving office June 1 after 38 years with the department.

City Manager James Spore says Jacocks is a first rate chief who made the city safer.

Jacocks started as a clerk in 1971 and became a patrolman two years later. Along the way, Jacocks worked in four precincts, special operations and the detective bureau, among other things. He also served a stint as acting chief.
