San Luis Obispo police chief to retire
July 6, 2011
Hired in 2003, Linden worked to stop Mardi Gras celebrations in the city. Linden also led the efforts to modify the noise ordinance by adding additional fees to be a more “effective tool that has improved the quality of life for many residents in neighborhoods impacted by parties.”
“I have been incredibly fortunate to have a career that allowed me to serve the public in such a meaningful way,” said Linden. “I feel honored and humbled to have worked with some of the finest law enforcement professionals anywhere.
“I am incredibly proud of the work accomplished by employees at the Police Department every day, and I will miss them tremendously.”
A national recruitment will begin shortly in order to have the next police chief appointed by the time Chief Linden retires in late December.
