LANSING, Ill. (September 15, 2020) – Lansing Police Chief Dennis Murrin has announced his plans to retire on January 13, 2021, ending three and a half decades of work with the Lansing Police Department.
Murrin joined the police force as a cadet, and became a telecommunicator and part-time officer before being hired as a full-time police officer on January 13, 1991. His January 13, 2021 retirement date will mark exactly 30 years of full-time service. Murrin has been chief since 2009.
“It’s been a wonderful career, and I’ve loved every minute of it,” Murrin said. “I know this is cliché but it really is time to step aside and pursue some other interests in life and enjoy more time with my family.”
Murrin’s replacement has not yet been determined.
