Halstead said: “Chief Savern has been trying to instill a discipline within the department, and this practice is being severely hit.” Halstead said that it was for personal reasons, and he was in the department. After working for 27 years, he retired on December 1.

“But, for me,” he added, “ensure that the city leadership improves this department is indeed a task in 2021.”
