The 66-year-old law enforcement veteran said he had retired before, from his position as a lieutenant in the Chicago Police Department, before accepting the job as Loyola's director of campus safety nearly a decade ago.
"At Loyola, for the majority of time you’re dealing with educated people," Fine said of the main difference between working security at a university and patrolling Chicago's streets.
The university employs 48 officers who patrol two blocks into the neighborhoods surrounding its campuses.
What will Fine do with his time after spending 42 years in law enforcement?
"Volunteer at a nursing home or hospital a couple of days a week. Get in better shape," he replied.
Fine said he lives with his wife, a nurse, in the city.
Loyola spokeswoman Maeve Kiley said the search was on for Fine's replacement, and the university hoped to have a replacement before Fine's last day.
