Police Chief Aceves To Retire

LA MESA -- With almost 30 years with the La Mesa Police Department, Chief Ed Aceves has decided to resign.

Aceves said today that he plans to retire as soon as a replacement can be hired.
"I expect it could take six months,'' Aceves said. He said he was retiring solely because it is time and does not have another job he is pursuing at this time.

City sources said neither of Aceves' two captains have expressed an interest in the job so it is likely La Mesa could go outside to hire a new chief.

Word of the retirement began circulating through political circles today. Aceves confirmed his two captains would not be seeking the job, but said the search for his successor would be in the hands of the City Manager.

"I intend to stay as long as it takes to name my replacement,'' he said.

Aceves came up through the ranks and received high marks for his work throughout his career before being named chief in 2011.
