CAPE CORAL, FL- Cape Coral's top cop says it is time to call it quits.
Chief Rob Petrovich is retiring after 26 years on the job.
The Chief leaves the city with some of the lowest crime rates in the country.
Petrovich says he cannot take all the credit and instead focuses on the rank and file saying he, "is proud" of the men and women of the Cape Coral police department.
The Chief says there were some low points during his tenure.
The death of 30 year old telecommunicator Michelle Alline Olson back in 2009 and the devastating injuries sustained by motorcycle officer Damian Garcia in that same year.
The Chief says he cares deeply for each and everyone of his employees.
As for future plans, Petrovich says he will focus on his family and his church.
