Campbellsville Police Chief Dennis Benningfield will retire Dec. 1.
Benningfield, who became chief in August 2005, says it is simply time for him to step down.
“You know when you’re ready,” Benningfield said. “I’ve got 30 years in law enforcement. I’ve got a lot of things I’d like to do and get done.”
Benningfield said his only real plans are to spend more time with family.
“I want to put as much effort into family and church as I have my career,” he said.
