Superior Police Chief Charles LaGesse is hanging up his holster at the end of the year as he enters retirement.

LaGesse said he was the youngest officer ever hired by the department at the age of 19, and 33 years later he is ready to pass on the duty of protecting the community.

LaGesse said every decision he made as an officer and as chief was to help protect and serve Superior, and he hopes the department continues with that mission.

“The most important thing is the safety of the community and the safety of the officers. Every day I hope that nothing happens that's tragic in this community and this agency. There's nothing more important to me than that continues, and we avoid tragedy,” LaGesse said.

LaGesse said he'll stay focused on the job until he retires in January, but he is ready to relax with more time for hobbies.
