Chief Tim George Leaves Medford Police

Geoffrey Riley/JPR News

Medford Police Chief Tim George is retiring at the end of November.

His tenure as chief--less than five years--may seem short, but he's been in an MPD uniform for the better part of four decades. 

That time has been marked by changes in Medford's size and economy, and a rise in gang activity, now a major focus of police work. 

The chief visits the studio to talk about life behind the badge, and why he's leaving it behind at age 60.
