Adams, who previously served as deputy chief, has been at the department for
about five years. He was also involved in the Christmas for Kids and National
Night Out programs.
"I have decided it is time to move on to greener pastures," Adams said. "I will always cherish the memories I have made serving the people of Rockmart."
He said he wanted to do something different but has no plans to stay in law enforcement.
"Right now," he said, "I plan to take a break from work."
Adams said he was excited about his future and starting a new chapter in his life.
