Former Medway Police Chief Allen Tingley retired on July 5 after serving the Town of Medway for more than 45 years.
Tingley started in the department in 1976 as a “police custodian and EMT” and made his way through the ranks before being promoted to Chief of Police in 2007. 
His daughters Becky and Susan gave his last radio call during which they relayed a message of thanks for his “loyal and dedicated service to the police department and to the residents of Medway for the past 45 plus years.”
Chief Tingley responded, “It’s been my pleasure. Thank you everybody for such a wonderful career and be safe out there,” and then signed off one last time to a round of applause.
