DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) -- Former Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay is returning to the Northland and considering a run for St. Louis County Sheriff.

Ramsay made the announcement Monday afternoon in an exclusive interview with KBJR 6′s Dan Wolfe.

Ramsay left his Duluth post in 2016 to lead the Wichita, Kansas police department.

He announced this month he is stepping down from that position in March.

Monday, Ramsay told us his family is already back in Duluth, and he’s considering a run for St. Louis County Sheriff.

“Community service runs through my blood and I like serving our community,” said Ramsay. “The prospect excites me. Haven’t made a final decision. I’ve been listening and talking and learning from a lot of people in our community.”

Current St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman also confirmed to KBJR 6 Monday that he plans to retire at the end of his term next year.

He will have spent 20 years as Sheriff.

However, Litman plans to support his current Undersheriff, Jason Lukovsky, in the upcoming race for Sheriff.

Litman says the Sheriff’s Office is stable and functioning at a high level, and Lukovsky will do a good job of keeping it that way.
