Sgt. Wesley Hoyt honored for village service
Police Sergeant Wesley Hoyt was honored by his chief and the village board last week on his recent retirement from the village force.
His family members accompanied him to the meeting to witness the honor.
Chief Eric Proulx said Sgt. Hoyt retires after 17 years of service as a local police officer, supervisor and evidence custodian for the department.
He called Wesley “meticulous” in his daily duties “always on time for work” and completing his shifts always “with everything in order.”
The chief noted that Sgt. Hoyt called him shortly after the news of the untimely death of Sgt. Matt Dana with an offer to return to the force to temporarily fill in.
The chief added in jest that upon making the offer the sergeant made “it absolutely clear that once the department returns to normal staff letters, he was going back to retirement.”
Sgt. Hoyt was recently approved by the Franklin County Civil Service Department to temporarily rejoin the force, it was noted.
In other police news at last week's meeting, it was noted that the village had recently received a letter of thanks for help of police sergeants Jeff Carmichael and Wesley Hoyt from a Dannemora man whose autistic child was in distress at Stewart's Shop here.
The chief reported that while the Saranac Lake Police Department did not have spare officers to lend Tupper Lake PD during its current staff shortage in the wake of the death of Sgt. Matt Dana and the recent resignation of Officer Jay Peets, the Franklin County Sheriff's Department had available staff to cover four shifts this month.
Chief Proulx also reported 216 incidents involving his department during the month of July.
He also noted the new K-9 unit four wheel drive vehicle the village recently acquired from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department is not in village service yet, awaiting a brake job.
