A reception welcoming retired La Porte City Police Chief Larry Feaker to civilian life was held on Friday afternoon at the La Porte City Community Center. Feaker’s service to La Porte City spanned 38 years, the last 31 as Chief. Throughout the afternoon, a steady stream of area residents and fellow law enforcement officers stopped by to offer their best wishes.

On November 27, the City Council appointed officer Chris Brecher as the interim Chief of Police.
