FAMU police chief will step down

The police chief at Florida A&M University is retiring less than a week after reports surfaced that Tallahassee authorities didn't receive timely information about an off-campus hazing incident from 2010, the school announced Tuesday.

The university said Calvin Ross, 63, will retire May 1 after 11 years with the university and 40 years in law enforcement. Ross, who previously headed the state's Department of Juvenile Justice, asked to be put on leave immediately.

  4. Oh, Florida! Irma's gone, but she left behind plenty of lessons for us

    Columns

    I don't want to make light of the misery and death that Hurricane Irma inflicted on Florida this month. A lot of it was ugly, and some of it was downright criminal. We saw greed and pettiness on display, and it brought illness and death.
