A longtime East Hampton village police commander is set to retire at the end of the year.
Cpt. Anthony Long will retire on December 31 after 28 years on the job, officials announced at the May 6 Village of East Hampton board meeting.
“Captain Anthony Long has led the 911 Dispatch Center and helped implement rules and procedures that guide operations today,” Chief Michael Tracey said. “He was instrumental in implementing emergency medical dispatching to the village, which is a process many centers do not yet have.”
Tracey said Long has been a constant influence on police policies and procedures to ensure State Accreditation compliance.
