Troy's police chief brings a 42-year career in law enforcement to an end Friday morning.
John Tedesco is retiring, and says he plans to spend more time with his family.
He's been diagnosed with ALS, but says that's not the only reason he's stepping down, and plans to start a new foundation, "Arrest ALS."
He says the goal is to help those who may not have the financial means to deal with the disease.
The farewell ceremony takes place at Police Heeadquarters on 6th Avenue.
