ELIZABETHTON — Elizabethton Chief of Police Matt Bailey has announced he will be stepping down from his post on Dec. 30. He will continue as a member of the department, serving as a shift captain.


In a news release issued Saturday, Bailey said “first, I want to say it has been a distinct honor and privilege to have served the citizens of Elizabethton as chief of police. However, after much thought and consideration, I have asked the city manager for a voluntary reassignment to the patrol division as patrol captain, which he has granted.”


The police department has made several advances under Bailey’s leadership. He has been especially active in the past year, culminating with the department undergoing its first ever accreditation inspection.
