Wellfleet Police Chief Announces Retirement

With his usual humility and grace, Chief Fisette begins final month in command

A message from Wellfleet Police Chief Ron Fisette:

I am closing in on my retirement date and just wanted to thank all for your support. In 1986 I started my law enforcement career as a Wellfleet Police Officer (I think I was 4 when I started). 

I have been blessed to have had such an incredible time with the Wellfleet PD and working for the Town of Wellfleet, serving our residents and visitors. So many experiences, friends and memories that I will always cherish. I have truly been blessed to work with the best of the best, officers & dispatchers, current and in the past. Thank you to all the fellow agencies that I have had the pleasure to work with. We have made a formidable team, making a difference for so many.

At the end of the month I will be giving up command and start my vacation till my retirement begins. It is my hope to work part time for the Wellfleet PD, filling in when needed, so I won’t be totally gone.

Again a heartfelt thank you to my fellow employees, past employees, my colleagues at the federal, state, county, and local level across the cape, state, United States and internationally (as far away as Australia) 

Our success wouldn’t have been possible without the support and assistance of the politicians, business groups, the schools, charities, church groups, committees, citizens, visitors and all our partners. Collectively we have done some good and you all have made me look good. I couldn’t have done anything without you all!!

Humbly yours,
