Tuesday, October 30, is High River Police Chief Robin Alexander's last day on the job.

After 31 years with the Mounties he's calling it a career.

Alexander, a High River Native, says it's special to end his career at home.

"It's been great being the Police Chief in High River over the last three and a half years. And really been a great career with the RCMP over the last 31 years. Met some great people, worked in some great communities and for me it couldn't have worked out better for me to land in High River for the end of my career.

He says it's incredibly rare for an RCMP member to finish his career in his hometown, so he's been very lucky.

Alexander says after 31 years on the force, nailing down a highlight of those years is pretty tough to do.

"Every place that I've been to, and I've moved 10 times in 30 years, has it's own unique and special memories for me. My trip overseas in 1994 with the U.N. was a real eye opener. Just, the whole thing in a nutshell, I've had some great adventures and had some fantastic postings and jobs and have absolutely no regrets."

Alexander says he plans to stay here in his retirement.

His official retirement day is Monday, December 31.
