After 12 years as head of the Police Presidium Western Palatinate, Police President Wolfgang Erfurt passed on the responsibilities to Elmar May.
During a retirement ceremony on May 26, Erfurt was honored by numerous host nation government officials to include Lt. Gen. Tom Jones, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa vice commander and KMC commander.  Observed by more than 200 representatives from German federal and state government, Roger Lewentz, Rheinland-Pfalz Minister of the Interior, presented the retirement certificate to Erfurt.  General Jones thanked the police president for assuring the safety of Germans and Americans alike.
"From day one of your tenure, you have stressed the importance of building partnerships with the U.S. forces," Lewentz said. "Your guiding principle has always been the U.S. forces are as much a part of this region as the 1. FCK. You have recognized that Germans and Americans want the same thing: a safe community in which to work and live. You have worked hard to achieve this goal." 
May, Erfurt's successor, started his tenure as the new police president on Monday.
