Congratulations goes out to retiring Houlton Police Officer Gary McGuire on 10 great years of service to the community.

The announcement of his retirement was posted on Facebook on Monday, September 27, 2021.

Officer McGuire started his police career in 2011 at the age of 50 with a strong desire to serve the local community. He was a business owner prior to joining the force. Part of his motivation was seeing his older brother work as a police officer in Arizona.

Officer McGuire worked on patrol for five years of his time at the Houlton Police Department. He then took on a position with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. Officer McGuire dedicated himself to investigating drug crimes in Aroostook County. It’s a really important job the MDEA does in the state, and it takes a great officer to fill that role.
