Madison Police Chief Mike Koval announced his retirement in his daily blog on Sunday.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve this community. Each day, I resolved to do my level best to keep “Camelot” a safe place to live, work, and play–for everyone,” Koval wrote. “This is the City where I was raised, went to grade school through college (and parts of my law school studies), met my wife here, began our family here, and provided me with the opportunity to make a difference as a street cop for a department that was (and is) firmly committed to community policing.”

Starting Monday, Assistant Chief Vic Wahl will work as the interim Chief of Police for MPD until the Police and Fire Commission (PFC) finds a permanent replacement.
