After five years on the job, Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan is stepping down from his post Friday, KSTP-TV reported.

The City of Minneapolis says on Dolan's watch, violent crime dropped 42 percent from 2007-2012, the lowest level in nearly 30 years.

Dolan will be replaced Assistant Chief Janee Harteau, who will be the first woman to front the Minneapolis Police Department.

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak nominated Harteau to replace Dolan last month.

The Star Tribune posted a slideshow of a Dolan being honored Friday for his accomplishments.
