Farmington police chief plans to retire in April
FARMINGTON – Police Chief Kevin Willey announced “with a certain amount of sadness” that he intends to retire as of April 25.
“At this point in my life, I feel that it is time to tackle other challenges and look forward to the opportunity to do so,” Willey said in an email.
After spending two years as an officer with Milton Police, Willey transferred to Farmington, where he rose up the ranks the past 21 years.
“When I retire, I will have been chief two years,” Willey said, adding he previously served as a lieutenant under Chief Scott Roberge, who left in April 2012.
“Both the department and I have grown tremendously over the last two decades. The work that I have put in and the organizational philosophy that I have instilled in the department's officers has laid the foundation for continued growth that will last well after my departure,” Willey said.
As for his plans for the future, Willey said he was approached about entering the private sector around Christmas, but he won’t provide further details “until the negotiations are finalized.”
“I want to thank the residents of Farmington for the opportunity to serve as the police chief,” Willey said.
