Chief of Police Les Kachurek announced his resignation and will leave Northern Kentucky University next month, according to a statement released by the university Thursday.

Kachurek has accepted a position at the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association in New York, where he will teach leadership and internal-affairs courses. He will retire from policing after serving as a law enforcement official for over three decades.

An interim police chief will be appointed while a search is conducted to fill the position. The statement did not say when this appointment will be made.

Kachurek was named Chief of Police in August 2015 following the April 2015 resignation of Jason Willis.

Kachurek’s last day at NKU is July 29.

The Northerner will continue to follow this story and will update as information becomes available.
