MANDEVILLE, La. (AP) — Mandeville’s police department soon will have a vacancy in its top post.

Police Chief Gerald Sticker announced his retirement Friday after nearly 30 years of service. He said the department is fully staffed and well equipped and that’s how he wants to leave it, WVUE-TV reported.

Sticker said any accomplishments he made as chief are a direct result of the hard work of the department’s dedicated officers.

Sticker started as a reserve officer with the department in 1992 and moved to a full-time post in 1995. His last day on the job will be June 18.

The city has not announced who will succeed Sticker.
