Caron admitted Wednesday to "a lapse in judgment" over photos of nude women sent on his official town email account – and, after being asked about the emails by The Courant, he decided to retire.Caron, 62, submitted notice Wednesday of his intention to retire after 40 years on the police force, the last five as chief, Glastonbury Town Manager Richard J.
Johnson said."He notified me in writing this morning, confirming his intention to retire," Johnson said Wednesday night. Caron met with Johnson to inform him about the emails on Tuesday, the day after a Courant reporter called to ask him about copies of email printouts that were sent to the newspaper."He indicated to me that he had sent some emails that were inappropriate and he had made a mistake," Johnson said, declining further comment.
The Courant recently received an envelope, with no return address, containing color printouts of three emails that were marked as forwarded from Caron's official email account to his friends.
The chief said his Tuesday meeting with Johnson lasted about 10 minutes.
Caron originally agreed to be interviewed by The Courant that day, and to be shown the email printouts, but he called the newspaper to reschedule for Wednesday afternoon.
