CHAPEL HILL, NC (WGHP) – Outgoing Greensboro Police Chief Brian James has a new job.

Brian James announced his retirement from the Greensboro Police Department last month. His last day on the job is May 31, and he will start as UNC Police Chief on July 1, according to a press release from UNC. Mayor Nancy Vaughan tweeted the publication with her best wishes for Chief James.

Teresa Biffle, a 27-year veteran of the force and deputy chief of the administration office, will serve as interim police chief while the city searches for James’ permanent replacement. The city will work with a recruitment agency to help find him.

“I was born and raised here, raised here, and it proves that this community can raise its own leaders,” James said, reflecting on the announcement of his retirement.

James had headed the Greensboro Police Department as the 23rd chief of police for the past two years.

The UNC Chapel Hill statement said in part: “Brian James, a highly respected chief of law enforcement, has been appointed Chief of Police at UNC, effective July 1. Chief James comes to Carolina after retiring from the position of Police Commissioner at the Greensboro Police Department, where among other things he helped secure mental health resources for his team and the community, participated in community meetings about policing and ran a program to help teenagers find work.”

They say James was chosen after a hard-fought national search.
