Cary Chief of Police Patricia Bazemore will step away Friday after nearly 30 years in law enforcement.  In 2008 Bazemore was named chief which made her the first woman to hold that position in Cary.

Bazemore was also the department’s first female lieutenant, captain, major and deputy chief.  Things have definitely changed since the start of her career.

Around the time when Bazemore joined the department in 1986, there were 31 staff members serving the town’s population of about 32,000. Today, Cary has 153,000 residents and a police department with 230 employees.

The town is conducting a national search for a new police chief. So far, they have not named a replacement.  53 year old Bazemore told WRAL News that in retirement she plans to focus on time with family, travel and volunteer work.
