BROOKLYN - Dozens of police officers at the 67th Precinct came out to honor a beloved police chief that is retiring after more than three decades of serving Brooklyn.

Chief Owen Monaghan has served the borough and other parts of the city for 34 years. Monaghan is in charge of 13 precincts in the Brooklyn region.

He started his career as a police officer in 1981, and during his tenure he's held just about every rank.

A walk-out ceremony was held Friday, where colleagues walked Monaghan and his family out of the precinct for the last time.

Police officers who have worked with Monaghan told News 12 Brooklyn that he was an incredible leader and very community oriented. They say he will be truly missed.
