BERKELY, Mo. (KMOX) – The longtime police Chief of Berkeley is retiring.

Frank McCall started as a patrol officer with the North County Police Department more than 26 years ago.

“When you started in 1990, you know, you’ve chased a lot of people,” McCall said, “Fortunately , I haven’t gotten shot at– that I know of–and I thank God that I never had to shoot at a person. I consider myself blessed.”

McCall says police departments need to gain the trust of the community in order to be effective. He supports the use of body cameras to police departments accountable for how they police.

McCall declined to answer reporters questions about his next career move, and whether he has a job lined up with another department.
