Lowellville’s police chief is retiring Friday after 27 years with the department.

Chief William Vance started his career in 1987 and rose through the ranks to chief in 2001.

Vance said health conditions have caused him to retire. He said he’s had two open-heart surgeries in the past few years.

“I cannot say enough about the officers that have been here and bettered themselves,” Vance said. “They have really been family. Monday is going to be the tough day knowing that I am not coming in to be with my officers and everyone in the community.”
