Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott is retiring. The city will host a celebration of Abbott’s more than 29 years of service on Friday, Sept. 13 in the Seymour Police Department Lobby from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. That is located at 205 North Ewing Street.

City officials say that accrued vacation will keep Abbott on the payroll for a few months, but his last day on the job is effectively Sept. 13th.
