Douglasville Police Chief Chris Womack is counting the days until he leaves the department he has known so well.

With role models like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, Chief Womack acknowledges his straight-forward style rubbed some the wrong way. But his biggest regret he said involves family.

"A lot of times putting my family in the back seat and my career in the front seat," Chief Womack said.

"I'm just going to sit back and see where the community feels like I need to be. Will you run for sheriff? That's been talked about and we'll just have to see how the citizens feel about it," Chief Womack said.

Chief Womack said he is fully cooperating with the Fulton County District Attorney's Office with its ongoing investigation.
