rick lucyRick Lucy has spent more than 30 years of his life trying to make Abbotsford safe, but the Deputy Police Chief officially announced his retirement on Thursday.

Lucy already has a pretty cool new job lined up: Advisor on Policing and Public Safety for the police force in Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia in Africa.

Lucy says Abby PD has been involved with the Namibian police force since 2008.

“I’ve had the lead at this end for that program and they have been apparently been very happy with the help that we’ve been offering them and the role that I’ve had in that because they have offered me a contract to go there on a more full time basis.”

Lucy has been with Abby police since 1982 and received the Order of Merit for Police Forces in 2012.
