Today a Central Oregon community is saying goodbye to its police chief. This afternoon people can stop by from 4 to 6 and say a farewell to Redmond Police Chief Ronnie Roberts. Starting in January, Chief Ron Roberts' staff will double; he's moving on to Olympia, Washington as Police Chief there. He'll manage a much larger staff in a much larger city, a place that has a history of protests that sometimes turn violent. Roberts says he's proud that he's been able to build a strong foundation of community policing. He says his journey north is bittersweeet, because he's loved living and working in Redmond. He has a home in Central Oregon and still plans to play here. Roberts was the Police Chief in Redmond for 3 and a half years.
