Tsonis set to retire

By ROBERT LINNEHAN | The Haddonfield Sun
Longtime Chief of Police Rick Tsonis announced his retirement after serving within the Haddonfield Police Department since 1983. The chief’s retirement will go into effect at the end of July, according to borough representatives.

Tsonis has led the 22-member department for the past 10 years, Commissioner Ed Borden said.
“The chief has been very dedicated to the officers in his department and the citizens of our town. I know he’s been thinking about retirement for quite a while, and he certainly has done everything he can to smooth the transition,” Borden said. “All of us, the commissioners and everyone in town, wish him well in a new chapter of his life. “

Tsonis began his career as a rookie police officer with the department in 1983.

In his stead, Borden announced that Captain John Banning, a 26-year veteran of the department, will carry out the duties of the Chief for the next four months while retaining the title of captain. Sergeant Gary Pearce will serve as an acting lieutenant during the same period. During that time the borough will consider changes in the managerial structure and training regimen of the department.
