Marion Police Sergeant Tom Sisson Retires after Nearly 37 Years of Service

MARION, IN: (July 14th, 2016) – A devoted member of the Marion Police Department will officially enter retirement Friday after nearly 37 years of dedicated service.

Sergeant Tom Sisson, born and raised in Marion, Indiana, signed on with the MPD in October of 1979. Sisson served as a patrol officer during most of his career, but also served as a detective, a member of the Joint Effort Against Narcotics (JEAN) Team, was active in the once active Car Seat Program for the Safe Kids Organization, as well as the former Community Oriented Policing Program, where he worked very closely with citizens.

“It was nice to be able to help people with their day-to-day concerns & safety issues. MPD was a good place to work, and the officers here genuinely enjoy helping people,” Sisson reflected.

Marion Police Chief Angie Haley said she enjoyed working with Sisson for many years. “Tom is a great man, and police officer, and I’m going to miss him.”

Sisson said he’s not yet sure what he will do in retirement. “I simply look forward to every day being a Saturday. It will be interesting.” Sisson looks forward to spending time with his wife, son & daughter-n-law, and five grandchildren. Sisson’s grandson, Richie Sisson, works in dispatch for the department.

Tom Sisson’s last official day is today, July 14th, 2016.
