WILMINGTON- One of the state’s longest serving police chiefs retired in October. Wilmington Police Chief Joe Szarejko’s retirement “party” was a quiet luncheon with his fellow police officers and a few other town employees – the most fuss he would allow, according to Wilmington Town Manager Scott Tucker.
Szarejko doesn’t like to blow his own horn. He looks at the best successes over his 36-year career in law enforcement as the result of team efforts. And the accomplishments he’s most proud of aren’t the criminal cases solved, or arrests that have been made.
