The East Carolina University Police Chief is retiring at the end of March.
Scott Shelton, chief since 2008, notified the university at the end of January he will move back to Missouri to be closer to family, officials said.
He came to ECU after serving as chief at the University of Missouri-Kansas City department and as an officer at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Shelton helped forge a collaborative and lasting relationship with other local law enforcement agencies, Associate Vice Chancellor Bill Koch said.
“He is leaving the ECU Police in much better shape than he found it,” Koch said.
The university is in the process of hiring an assistant chief. A search for a new chief will begin when that selection is made.
