We want to congratulate Robert Sanborn Sr. on his retirement as chief of the Winthrop Auxiliary Police following 39 years of service. The Town Council honored Sanborn for his volunteer service to the town and it was a touching ceremony as Mr. Sanborn said he is leaving a job that he loved.
We learned at the ceremony that our police chief, Terence Delehanty, got his start in the field of law enforcement as a radio operator for the Auxiliary Police under Chief Sanborn. Delehanty was among those lauding Sanborn for his contributions to our town.
Thank you, Chief Sanborn, for all that you gave to our town and its residents.
