After 30 years of service with the Cincinnati Police Department, Executive Assistant Chief Paul Humphries announced his retirement Thursday. 

In a release, Humphries announced that he accepted a position with a newly formed Coca Cola Beverages Florida in Tampa said the following.

“After careful consideration and deliberation, I have accepted a position with the newly formed Coca Cola Beverages Florida (CCBF) headquartered in Tampa, Florida. President and COO Reginald Goins approached me about joining the company a year ago, and the recruiting process has been ongoing. This decision is about me taking advantage of a new business opportunity that I never imagined would present itself.

I have been incredibly proud to be a part of the Cincinnati Police Department, and I am deeply grateful to the men and women, sworn and civilian, who have made the last 30 years so fulfilling. My heartfelt thanks go to the citizens of Cincinnati who supported me during my career, particularly during my tenure as Interim Police Chief, and who continued to support me in my current position as Executive Assistant Police Chief.

My childhood dream was to become a Cincinnati Police Officer, and the fulfillment of that dream surpassed all expectations. I consider myself incredibly lucky now to have this new door open to an exciting new challenge in my professional life.

Finally, thank you to my family and friends who continue to support me. You truly are the best.”

June 19 is the tentative date that has been set as Humphries' last day with the Cincinnati Police Department.

“Chief Humphries has been an outstanding leader in the Cincinnati community and a tremendous asset to the Command staff of the Cincinnati Police Department. We thank him for his years of service. His leadership and commitment will be sorely missed. I will miss him greatly and am proud of this new opportunity for him,” said Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell, in a release. 

Details about the process to name a new Assistant Chief will be announced soon.
