Chief of Chicago Police Department's Organized Crime Section Retires

Another high-ranking Chicago police official is retiring from the department, among a half-dozen to leave since Supt. Jody Weis took office in February.

Frank Limon, chief of the organized crime section, which oversees both gang and narcotics divisions, said goodbye to colleagues Friday, though his last official day is Monday.

Limon, 54, said his retirement would allow him to spend more time with his wife and two children and to pursue other opportunities.

A 30-year veteran, Limon had been a deputy chief for the Grand Central area, an assistant deputy superintendent and commander of the Wood District. As chief of organized crime, he oversaw several major operations, including an investigation into fentanyl-laced heroin traced to Mexico that left at least five dead in Chicago.

Limon's successor has not yet been named, a spokeswoman for the department said.
