Longtime Camdenton Police Chief Laura Wright is retiring in October.

Wright says her last day of work will be October 1st and her official final day as Chief of Police is October 15th.

The city first appointed her as Police Chief in 1999, but she’s been involved in city dealings since the 1980s.

Wright was given a resolution of appreciation from the Board of Alderman commemorating her “dedicated years of service” to the city.
