SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- The city of Salina will be looking for a new police chief in the next few months.

KSAL-AM reports (http://bit.ly/14AbISO ) Chief Jim Hill announced Thursday he'll retire on Oct. 1 from the job he's held since January 1991.

Hill is 64 years old and has been in uniform for 44 years. He says he's looking forward to traveling and spending time with his grandchildren.

Hill calls the decision bittersweet, saying he has a lot of affection for the police department and the city of Salina.

Looking back over his career, Hill said the low point was the night one of his officers was shot in the face during a standoff last September. The officer returned to duty in April.
