After 30 years with the Bismarck Police Department, Police Chief Dan Donlin says he will be retiring coming this summer/fall.
In a press release Donlin says, “This is a very difficult decision and it is not made hastily or lightly. I do not have the words to express how grateful and blessed I am to have had the opportunity for the past 30 years to work for the best law enforcement agency in the state of North Dakota, the law enforcement agency that sets the benchmark for professionalism and skillful delivery of police services, and for the wonderful city and community I was blessed to be born and raised in.”
Donlin also extended his gratitude to all his coworkers at the Bismarck Police Department and those at the City Commission.
Donlin also says, although he is intending to retiring from BPD he is by no means “retiring from work.” He says he doesn’t know what he’ll be up to next, but that he is looking locally for new career opportunities.
He says his window for retirement is anywhere between June 1, 2018 and September 28, 2018.
He adds, “Up until the day I retire, I will continue to do my best for the exceptional men and women who make up the Bismarck Police Department and I will continue to do my best for YOU, the citizens we serve.”
