“My plans for the future is to retire and all that that implies,” Wiley said in an interview with Guidry News Service. “I’ve been doing this for 42 years.”

Wiley said he has been a chief of police five different times since he became a police officer in Galveston.

“It is a pressure cooker, there is no doubt about that, but I’ve enjoyed my work,” he said. “Every place I’ve ever worked I’ve left a little better than how I found it.”

Although retirement was in his plans anyway, Wiley said the city council’s termination of former city manager Steve LeBlanc was a reason he has chosen to retire now.

“There is no question about that,” he said. “The termination of the city manager in my view was not handled well. “
