NT police chief to retire


Tonawanda News — He added: “It’s not a traditional retirement. like when our grandparents left the factory, it’s a transition time.” 

Szukala, who grew up in the Lumber City, will continue working as a referee for local hockey leagues, and may be involved in guiding the next chief, even after his retirement, according to Ortt. 

“He let me know a couple of weeks ago and I knew he was looking so it didn’t come as a complete surprise,” Ortt said. “He’s done an extremely commendable job as an officer. He patrolled our streets, he lived here in North Tonawanda. Sometime you can’t really say anything but thank you but sometime thank you is not a big enough word.”
