Quincy, FL - The chief of the Quincy Police Department is stepping down.

Walt McNeil recently turned in his resignation. September 26th will be his last day.

McNeil joined QPD as chief in February of 2011. He says it was always the plan to leave after around three years. He told WCTV he's leaving primarily to assist George Sheldon in his efforts to become Florida's attorney general and Charlie Crist's efforts of returning as the state's governor.

Chief McNeil says, "I've really enjoyed the last three years. I'm leaving the department in great hands with hopefully Chief Sapp, who we brought over from Tallahassee with the expectation that sometime I'd be doing this transitioning out of this position."

The assistant chief of police Glenn Sapp is expected to be in charge after McNeil leaves until the city manager selects a new chief.
