RIDGELAND, Mississippi — Ridgeland will be choosing a new police chief again for the fourth time since 2011.

Ridgeland Mayor Gene McGee tells The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/1QqUDUN) Police Chief Randy Tyler announced his retirement at the city's Board of Aldermen meeting Tuesday.

The 30-year law enforcement veteran has served with the Ridgeland Police Department for 27 years. He was appointed less than a year ago after the former chief Jimmy Houston retired.

Tyler served as interim police chief from May to September of 2011, when Houston resigned to run for Madison County Sheriff. Houston was reappointed to the position when he was defeated in the race for sheriff.

Tyler, who began serving as police chief on June 25 of 2014, will serve for a year and five days, retiring on June 30, 2015.
