After more than two decades of service, Tuesday is the South Windsor police chief's last day in office.

"Thank you chief for all you have done for us," the post read. "We will continue the fine traditions of the [South Windsor Police Department], providing exceptional service to our citizens. We wish you well in your next career and you will be missed!"

The 50-year-old planned to retire at the end of June.
