HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - The police chief in Hobbs is retiring.
    
The city announced Monday that Chief Chris McCall's last day will be Feb. 28.
    
McCall started his law enforcement career with the Texas Tech University Police Department in 1997. From there, he went to Hobbs and worked as a patrolman, field training officer, sergeant and lieutenant.
    
McCall served as deputy police chief from 2010 to 2013 and as interim police chief before being promoted.
    
McCall thanked his staff and the Lea County Sheriff's Office, whom he said worked to positively impact the communities.
    
The chief also volunteered on various boards and with nonprofit groups.
    
Hobbs Mayor Sam Cobb says McCall served during a time of rapid growth in the city, making the job more challenging.
