The village of Camp Point will soon be in the market for a new chief of police.

David Lantz gave the village notice at its last board meeting that he plans to retire on March 26.

"It's just time to go do something else," Lantz said.

Lantz, 58, has been the top law enforcement official in the eastern Adams County village for 24 years. He has served as the village administrator for 21 years. Lantz has been in law enforcement since 1976. Before joining the Camp Point force, Lantz was a member of the Mount Sterling Police Department and the Brown County Sheriff's Department.

"There aren't any hard feelings here," he said.

Lantz did not know how the village was going to replace him. Camp Point Mayor Dick Dieterle did not return a phone call seeking comment.
