GEORGETOWN — Chief Donald C. Cudmore and the Georgetown Police Department announce the retirement of Communications Dispatcher Lucille Manning after more than three decades of dedicated service to the community.

Dispatcher Manning was hired in 1987 in the Georgetown Communications Center, which serves the Town’s 9-1-1 system for the Police and Fire Departments and assists in all communications for non-emergency Town departments.

Dispatcher Manning served as a member of the Domestic Violence Crisis Intervention Team for many years and is responsible for the Department’s Domestic Violence Program.

She also created numerous art pieces that decorate the Georgetown Police Station.

Dispatcher Manning, who lives in Georgetown, intends to spend more time with her family and granddaughter in retirement.

“Lucille’s dedication to the Town of Georgetown is beyond words. She was a constant caretaker for all public safety employees and always put the Department first. To maintain that level of commitment for so many years is impressive,” Chief Cudmore said. “There is no doubt that she has saved many lives in Georgetown during her career.”
