After 40 Years, An End to a Police Career

By James Lomuscio

Lt. Jeremiah Shannon, who marked 40 years on the Westport Police Department April 4, described today as emotional rollercoaster. It was his last day on the force. Image

Just before the 3 p.m. end of his last shift, the normally strictly all-business main police radio frequency was filled with tributes from patrol officers wishing their shift commander good luck in his retirement. “You’re the best, Jerry,” said one, echoing the feelings of many.

“A lot of people that I’ve worked with over the years came in to say goodbye,” Shannon said later from his Trumbull home. “When you think about it, we spend more time working here than with our families, so you get pretty close to these people, and it was emotional.”

Shannon, 62, noted that Chief Dale Call’s research “as far as he could go” showed that no other officer had stayed as long. Former Police Chief William Chiarenzelli came close, he said, with 38 years.
