Valley Indy Radio: Retiring Seymour Police Chief Michael Metzler

Seymour Police Chief Michael Metzler is retiring in June after 30 years as the town’s top cop.

He also spent just over a decade on the job in Ansonia.

In this free-wheeling episode of “Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast,” Metzler talks about what it was like to patrol Ansonia in the late 1970s, how he tried to keep external politics out of the Seymour Police Department, and what’s changed in law enforcement since 1976.
