DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier said on Tuesday that she will step down from her position next month.
After 26 years of service, Lanier will take a new position as head of security for the National Football League.
“Almost ten years ago, I accepted the job as the chief of police in Washington, D.C., not only because I love this department and the city, but because I realized the significance of keeping our nation’s capital safe in an environment everything that America values is vulnerable to attack,” Lanier wrote in her farewell letter. “It is for the same reason I have decided to accept a position that will allow me to serve and protect America’s favorite sport.”
Mayor Muriel Bowser said that she will name an interim chief in the coming days, according to the Washington Post.
