Charlottesville, VA, Police Chief Alfred Thomas announced his retirement Monday, just over two weeks ago after the release of a report highly critical of his efforts handling multiple protests in Charlottesville.

The retirement of Thomas, who has 27 years of law enforcement service, is effective immediately. The United States Air Force veteran has served since May 23, 2016, WTVR TV reports.

“Nothing in my career has brought me more pride than serving as the Police Chief for the City of Charlottesville,” said Thomas. “I will be forever grateful for having had the opportunity to protect and serve a community I love so dearly. It truly has been an unparalleled privilege to work alongside such a dedicated and profession al team of public servants. I wish them and the citizens of Charlottesville the very best.”

Many were wondering how long the Chief would stay in his position after the independent review of the circumstances surrounding an August rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that led to a woman’s death found police were unprepared and failed to protect the public.
