FREDONIA – A long-serving police officer in Fredonia retired Thursday, only before receiving a special surprise from the department.

Village of Fredonia Police Officer Tom Fisher has been on duty for 47-years after he started his career on September 2, 1974.

In common practice for many retiring officers, Fisher signed off on his radio for the last time; however, the voice responding to his transmission was a surprise to him.

“Attention all units, it is a great pleasure to announce that after 47-years to this day in dedicated service, my dad, Officer Tom Fisher of the Fredonia Police Department, badge number three, is retiring and giving his final 10-7,” said Fisher’s daughter and police sergeant Kelley Lynn. “It is my honor to acknowledge your 10-7. You are the greatest man I know.”

Fisher was surprised to hear his daughter respond to his last call out.
