LONG BEACH — After serving the town for nearly 40 years, the Long Beach police chief will be retiring next month, and his replacement will be another familiar name to local residents.

In a statement Thursday, the town announced, “with pride and sadness,” the upcoming retirement of Chief Robert “Bob” Sulkowski from the Long Beach Police Department.

Thanks for all you did for the community, Bob.


Thank you I was going to see chief siltowski and incoming chief swistak.. I had a fire in my house about six years ago brought on by my contractor who did faulty wiring and in the middle of the night after having a heart surgery event the outgoing Chief was in my yard helping to put the Flames out now that was impressive and the incoming Chief I had the privilege of being in the 2019 Michigan City citizens Police Academy as a graduate and I have to say he was our leader and he is very impressive and very fair thank you to both
