College Station has said goodbye to one law enforcement veteran and is welcoming another.
Tuesday, Chief Michael Clancey is beginning a new era at the College Station Police Department.
College Station Police Chief Michael Clancey has spent 28 years in law enforcement, and counts himself lucky to begin his next chapter in the Brazos Valley.
"I feel fortunate I was chosen out of all the applicants. This is my dream come true," says Clancey.
Clancey began his days in the New Jersey State Correctional Department, two days ago he ended his career as Chief of Police in Westerville, Ohio.
Now he begins a new job, with a new department.
"I know it's difficult for them to see Chief Feldman leave but I will not break my promise to them. I'll give 110 percent everyday," says Clancey.
Clancey says building on the department's strengths will usher in continued success.
"To continue to work with staff to make this one of the most progressive stations not just in Texas but in the nation and with the talented staff I have, this is something we can accomplish," says Clancey.
Amid the excitement of a new beginning, Clancey knows College Station will become his family's new home.
"I plan to retire here, this is my last stop on the road," says Clancey.
