After Selma Police Chief Richard Cooper retires on Friday, Aug. 31, he said he’d be spending more time at the beach.
“I’ve bought a place and plan to enjoy it,” said Cooper. “But I also plan to work full-time in retail management.”
Cooper worked in retail management for 17 years before joining the Selma Police Department in 1995. During his 23-year law enforcement career, Cooper started as a patrolman and worked his way up the ladder to chief in 2014.
