Outgoing Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu is attending his final Vancouver Police Board meeting as the city’s top cop.
He says he’s leaving the force in ‘good hands’ with incoming Chief Adam Palmer who was recently named his successor.
The VPD is also losing longtime Public Affairs Director Paul Patterson.
He’s leaving on his 65th birthday May 21st and after 11 years with the force, his retirement plans include writing a book.
Chu has not yet said what he wants to do next, but there’s speculation he’s destined for a life in politics.
Former Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair recently announced he’s running for the Liberals in the upcoming federal election.
