Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler is honored before his retirement

Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler will be retiring after 25 years of service and was honored last Thursday in an at-times emotional ceremony at City Hall.

Present was Chief Gary Giannotta, who said he sensed in 1996 a young recruit that had some promise.

Councilor Jimmy Gianettino stated that despite not being a Democrat, he still formed a bond with the Chief.

City Manager Jeff Dygert will introduce the new chief at next week’s council meeting.
