“It is with mix emotions that I announce my retirement from the Key West Police Department effective December 3, 2018. After 24 years I can’t be but somewhat saddened and reluctant to leave it. But I also leave with the firsthand knowledge and pride that the Key West Police Department is in good hands. The men and women both sworn and civilian of the Key West Police Department are second to none. On a daily basis, I witness the remarkable professionalism and commitment to service you display. It has been a privilege to serve alongside of you and you are what I will miss most.  May God continue to keep you safe and may you continue to make us proud.”

Chief Lee began his career with the Department in 1994. He rose through the ranks until, on April 1, 2008, he was appointed Chief of Police. Chief Lee is a fifth generation Conch, and holds a degree in criminal justice from the University of Florida. He is also a graduate of the Southern Police Institute’s Command Development School, Drug Enforcement Agency’s Drug Unit Commanders Academy and the FBI’s Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar.

His last day on the job will be December 3rd.
