Cape police chief to retire

By Staff | May 12, 2010

Chief Rob Petrovich will retire from the Cape Coral Police Department in June, the city confirmed Wednesday.
The chief will address his retirement once he has set a date for teh action, police spokesperson Connie Barron said via e-mail.
“Until that time, Chief Petrovich is releasing the following statement,” Barron said.
“While I had not intended to announce my retirement until I filed the official paperwork, my plans to leave sometime in June have become public. I have decided that after 26 years of service to the City of Cape Coral, it is time for me to call it a career and retire from the Cape Coral Police Department.
“Cape Coral is a wonderful community, and I would like to thank all of the citizens who have supported their police department during my time as a Cape Coral police officer. The city has grown and changed so much since I started here on June 25, 1984. We have one of the finest police departments in the country, and we have achieved national recognition and accreditation as a flagship agency through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. Our police officers are here to protect and serve, and I know they will continue to work hard every day to keep this city safe.
“Finally, as I prepare to leave, I want to thank the many officers and civilians in the Cape Coral Police Department who I have had the privilege of working with these past 26 years. I have been honored to serve as their police chief for the past four years, and I know that they will continue to represent this department with honor and pride.”
