Virginia Tech honors retiring Chief Wendell Flinchum today

Posted: Updated:

Virginia Tech will honor retiring Police Chief Wendell Flinchum with a reception this afternoon. His last day on the job is Friday.

Chief Flinchum sat down with WSLS 10's Dawn Jefferies for an interview to talk about what he'll be up to next, mainly resting and unwinding. "The advice I've been given over the years is you'll know when it's right and it felt right," Flinchum said. "Things fell into place for me and it just felt like the right time to go."

Before he clocks out for the final time, Flinchum will attend a reception at the Inn at Virginia Tech from 3 to 6 p.m. Today. Guest speakers will be there as well to talk about his nearly 29 year career at Virginia Tech.
