Watertown's chief of police is retiring.
In a news release Wednesday morning, city officials announced the retirement of Chief Joseph Goss after a nearly 30-year career with city police.
The retirement is effective June 29.
Goss joined the department in 1982 and became a detective seven years later, where he worked in general crimes and as a member of the county's drug task force. He returned to road patrols when he was promoted to sergeant in 1992.
He became a lieutenant in 1996 and was appointed chief in May 2006.
City officials say 23 police officers - more than one-third of the force - were selected, trained and mentored by Goss and his team.
