Chattanooga Police Chief Fred Fletcher talks about his time at the head of the Chattanooga Police Department Monday, June 26, 2017, at the Chattanooga Police Service Center in Chattanooga, Tenn. Fletcher will be retiring in early July.

It has been three years since Fred Fletcher was sworn in as Chattanooga's police chief, but in 11 short days he will take off his uniform and badge for the last time.

Fletcher came with a promise to "shake the snow globe" at the Chattanooga Police Department and began in earnest with a set of policy changes to revamp its model of policing. He did so by working to build community partnerships, incorporate new technologies and use focused deterrence to target the sliver of the population driving violent crime.

"This community asked me to do a few specific things," he said Monday.
