BELMONT, NC (WBTV) - When David James started his career in law enforcement in 1982, police cars only contained a two-way radio and a shotgun.
A lot has changed since then, including James's rise from street patrol with Kannapolis PD to the Chief of Belmont PD.
"There comes a time in any career where you decide it's time for a change," said James about his reason for retiring. He's taking a job in the private sector which he says is not related to law enforcement.
"It will be a lot different, I'll have to do some de-programming."
James's last official day is February 28th, although on Friday, his office was all packed up. 28 years of reminders of his career in law enforcement. Chief James says he hopes a new Chief will be selected that will continue the progress in the police department.
