Thomasville police chief announces retirement after 30 years of service
The search for the next Thomasville Police Chief is underway.
In a press release on Wednesday, the city of Thomasville says it started the recruitment process once the current chief announced his retirement earlier this week.
John Letteney has been Thomasville's Chief of Police since 2021. Before joining TPD, Letteney served as police chief in North Carolina. But he spent most of his time as a law enforcer in New York with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
His 30-year-long career will come to an end next year. In his retirement letter, the police chief wrote "the decision to retire has not been an easy one, but I feel this is the right time."
Letteney's last day as TPD's Chief will be January 12, 2024.
