Police Chief Marvin Herrington to retire

Marvin Herrington, the university's police chief for 30 years, will retire May 1.

Herrington, 64, said he will relinquish the day-to-day running of the department March 1, when Capt. Marvin Moore, a 27-year veteran campus officer, will become acting chief pending the appointment of a permanent replacement. Herrington will spend his last two months on campus organizing files and completing projects, he said, but will remain available as a resource for the university.

In conjunction with Herrington's retirement, police sergeants Laura Wilson, Hilary Karp and Tim Hanrahan were promoted to the rank of lieutenant, effective Jan. 1.

A retrospective story on Herrington's career will appear in a future issue of Stanford Report.
