Chief Swanger Retires

Police Chief Guy Swanger

After a 36-year career in law enforcement and nine years as Chief of Police for the City of Concord, Chief Guy Swanger officially retired on April 2, 2020. His colleagues and the community bid him farewell as he begins the next chapter of his life, which will include doing more of what he loves – reading, traveling with his wife, Lora, and woodwork.

As he prepared to depart the City, we asked Chief Swanger about his time in Concord.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT AS CHIEF?
