"He has had an outstanding career in law enforcement for over 30 years, and brought a high level of professionalism to the department," said a news release from the city.

Rockvam's retirement comes weeks after the resignation of Assistant Cody Police Chief George Menig, who announced his departure from the department in early August.

In Tuesday's release, administrator Cook said he respected and appreciated Rockvam's "leadership and dedication to not only the department but the whole community."

Rockvam will help the city start the process of selecting a new police chief, the release said.

"Barry (Cook), along with the City Council, wish him the very best in his future and thank him for all the support he has given to the City Administrator during his first year in that position," the city's release said. "He will be missed by many not only in the city but throughout the entire community."
