On Monday night, LaFollette Police Chief Ben Baird announced his retirement at a council workshop.
While Baird has spent 36 years of his life in law enforcement, this is not his first time retiring from a job. He also spent many years as a special education teacher.
Baird said he always knew he wanted to hold a meaningful career, and that ambition brought him to study education.
He moved to Detroit, MI., in 1967 and began teaching in the special education department.
