WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Police Chief Ray Shultz will retire this May after 25 years with the borough police force.

Shultz, who has led the department for almost eight years, announced his plans in a letter read publicly to the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday.

"My recommendation would be not to accept this," Mayor Richard Starliper joked.

In fact, the council did approve the retirement and said they will research the process needed to find a new chief.

Shultz, then a sergeant, was appointed when Glenn Phenicie retired. In his letter, Shultz described his tenure as one with joy, sadness and sleepless nights.

"The last two years I've been mayor I've gotten to know him as a man of integrity," Starliper said of the chief.

He said that Shultz has always been willing to work to remedy problems and do what is in the best interest of the community.

Shultz oversees an authorized complement of 20 full-time officers.
