Less than three years after becoming police chief, and less than a year on the job as assistant city manager, Troy Riggs is headed to Indianapolis.
It seemed everyone liked Troy Riggs from the day he arrived in town to interview for the police chief's job back in 2009. Riggs got the job and was in charge of the police department until November of last year, when he took over as the assistant city manager over the police and fire departments.
Over that period of time, Riggs looked to make a lot of changes from his new position of power. He worked to streamline operations and to improve city services.
In a press release, City Manager Ron Olson said Riggs accepted the Director of Public Safety position with the City of Indianapolis, adding that "Troy Riggs is more than an asset, he is a tremendous public servant."
Assistant City Manager Oscar Martinez said that Riggs' duties will probably be split up among the other assistant city managers until a replacement can be found.
Riggs' last day on the job here will be Sept. 28.
