Amarillo Chief of Police Ed Drain will be leaving the department on February 7th.
KGNC spoke with the Chief about the reason for the departure.
Chief Drain has worked on building new programs, growing the number of officers on the force, and trust with the community.
A national search has begun for the new chief of police. The job of interim chief will be outsourced in order to give the two assistant chiefs a fair shot at applying.
