BANGOR, Maine — A veteran Bangor police officer has retired after more than two decades on the force.

Officer Paul Colley, who has served on Bangor’s force since 1988, worked his final patrol shift on Thursday, according to Lt. Paul Edwards.

Colley worked as a patrol officer for most of his career and was one of the department’s most recognized and well-known officers, particularly in the downtown area, according to Edwards.

Prior to coming to Bangor, Colley was a Hampden officer for four years and he also served in Orono for two years.

Colley will now serve as a courthouse marshal at the Penobscot Judicial Center.
