DC Police Homicide Commander Michael Farish Retiring

WASHINGTON (AP) — A police captain who oversees homicide investigations for the D.C. police department is retiring from the force.

Capt. Michael Farish, who heads the department’s homicide branch, says he’s enjoyed his more than 29 years with the department. He says he’ll be working post-retirement as a consultant for the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier tells The Associated Press that Farish will be missed. She calls him a highly dedicated member of the department who helped the department achieve its “historically high closure rate.”
