Edward Pocock III, former council chairman, to retire from Southington PD


SOUTHINGTON – Edward Pocock III, a former Town Council chairman, is retiring from his position as captain at the Police Department. He’ll work his last day on Tuesday.

The Board of Police Commissioners will meet Thursday to interview three candidates from the department and choose one to fill the position.

Pocock was promoted from lieutenant to captain in 2012 and stepped down from the council. As a Republican, he led the council while his party had a super majority.

Steven Pestillo, a police board commissioner, said he’s worked with Pocock for 10 years on various town boards.

“He’s great to work with,” Pestillo. “He’s a planner.”
