Town of Beloit police Sgt. retires
Abegglen was facing a hearing before the Town Police and Fire Disciplinary Review Committee February 22nd on charges of misconduct, filed by police Chief, John Wilson. The complaint alleges Abegglen harassed and intimidated the Administrative Assistant to Chief Wilson, Melissa Corum on several occasions. On at least one of them, Corum made an audio recording of the comments, which Abegglen later denied making.
Abegglen began working for the department nearly 30 year ago. He served in various capacities, achieving the rank of Deputy Chief in 2004. That rank was eliminated in April of 2009 and Abegglen served out the remainder of his time as a Sergeant.
