Connecticut State Police Lt. J. Paul Vance is retiring.
He served as state police spokesman from 1999 until two years ago when he was transferred – according to many – without adequate explanation.
Vance was praised by many for his work in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting. His years of experience interacting with the news media on a daily basis prepared him well as the eyes of the world focused on Connecticut.
He has been with the state police for 42 years. His retirement is effective April 1.
Good luck Paul.
