Saratoga Springs Police Chief Announces Retirement

By Staff Report | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Springs Police Chief Chris Cole announced April 24 in a statement that he will be retiring from the police department at the end of May. 

“It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from the department that has literally been a part of my life since I was a child,” Cole said in the statement. “Saratoga has seen many changes over the years but one thing that has remained constant is the dedication of the men and women who have chosen law enforcement as their chosen profession.”

Cole’s likely successor will be Greg Veitch, who currently serves as the assistant police chief for the department. 

“Although my retirement closes the door on this chapter of my career, other doors are opening. I have decided that I would like to pursue those other new opportunities while I am still young and energetic,” Cole said.
