LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Little Rock's top cop is a few days away from retirement.
Police Chief Stuart Thomas was honored on Monday at a ceremony as he prepares to walk away after 36 years with the department.
He's been in the top spot since 2005 but he started his career as a patrolman.
With stints as a detective as well as an administrator, Thomas had plenty to reflect on today.
Twice during his time as a homicide detective, Thomas received accommodations as Officer of the Month for the department.
