Caledonia Police Chief Toby Schey retired on Dec. 3, 2015.

Outgoing police chief Toby Schey will address the Caledonia Village Board for a special board meeting about the state of the Caledonia Police Department at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the East Side Community Center, 6156 Douglas Avenue.

After serving on the Caledonia Police Department for 24 years — almost five of it as the police chief — Toby Schey announced his retirement in November. Schey’s last day at the department was  Dec. 3. In the interim, Capt. Dan Warren will fill in as the Caledonia Police and Fire Commission search internally for his replacement.

Schey is expected to talk about the changes in the department and where he sees the department going. In prior interviews, Schey has highlighted issues around the department being short-staffed, the rise of drug-related cases, and the opportunity to use newer technology.

“There’s still more work to do,” he said. “You improve what you can, but it changes all the time with budgets, new laws and court decisions. You can make the right decision on something today, but then some court ruling will change it. It’s an ever-changing job.”
