Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer is selling his house outside Fresno but won’t say why.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home was listed on Zillow late Thursday for more than $600,000. Dyer lives outside of Fresno’s city limits. The home is listed by Realtor Nader Assemi of Assemi Real Estate, Inc.

Dyer declined to comment on the listing or a potential move.

After nearly 20 years on the job, Dyer will retire in October. So far he’s publicly said he’s unsure what he’ll do after he retires amid rumors he may run for mayor in 2020. Earlier this week, Fresno prosecutor Andrew Janz announced he will challenge incumbent Lee Brand in a bid for mayor.

The Zillow listing went up the same night Brand hosted a community meeting at Gaston Middle School seeking input on the police chief search. One community member said they’d like the next police chief to live in the community, preferably south Fresno.
