Windham needs a new police chief

Sep 26, 2023 12:43 am

Michael Ryan at the Mountain Eagle reports that the Windham Town Board last week accepted the retirement of Windham Police Chief Tor Tryland, effective October 15. The story says that, "Tryland has been on extended leave of absence since this past spring, reportedly attending to family matters in his native country." David Sherman, Jr. has been taking care of local administrative duties while Tryland was gone, and also working as a sergeant with the Catskill Police Department. Town Supervisor Thomas Hoyt said, “I’m pulling my hair out, trying to do what’s best for our community,” searching for a replacement for Tryland. “Staffing has become an issue over the past few years for the Windham Police Department,” he said. Hoyt also said, “We can’t offer as much as other agencies do. It’s a simple fact. We have started initial conversations with members of our police force, the union and the sheriff’s department about how we, as a community, can overcome this obstacle.” Read more about this story in Porcupine Soup.
