THETFORD, Vt. (AP) - The police chief in Thetford is retiring to take a job in the private sector.

The Valley News reports that Police Chief Michael Evans retires on Dec. 23, after a 30-year career in law enforcement in the Upper Valley. He became chief in Thetford in 2015, after working for more than 23 years for the Hanover Police Department in New Hampshire. He said many factors went into the decision to leave law enforcement, including the risk involved in the job, his age, and financial considerations.

He is taking a job as the service manager at Tasco Security, an alarm and monitoring company based in Enfield, New Hampshire.
