Vestal Police Chief Stace Kintner has announced his resignation.

The Vestal Police Department released a message from the chief that states in part: "It is true that I will be retiring at the end of February after almost 22 years of service with the Town of Vestal Police Department, and an additional 5 years with the Broome County Sheriff’s Office. I will be leaving to pursue other opportunities in the Law Enforcement Field. Leading the Vestal Police Department as Chief has been the greatest honor of my lifetime."
