Fishers Island Constable Horn Retires after Decades of Service

The Fishers Island community congratulates Lawrence Horn on his retirement as a Fishers Island Constable after 44 years with the Southold Town Police. As Larry retires on January 1, 2022, the Island thanks him for his dedicated service and remains grateful for his commitment, as reflected in the sentiments that follow from his colleagues.

For Larry, in appreciation:


“I have worked with Larry throughout the course of his career as a Constable for Fishers Island and I cannot think of a more qualified civilian servant to hold this position and represent our department on the Island. Larry is a wealth of knowledge on just about any activity on Fishers Island, always conducted himself professionally in his law enforcement role, and continually worked toward the best interests of the residents of the Island. He will be sorely missed by our department and I’m sure the New York State Police as well.”
Martin Flatley, Chief of Police
Town of Southold Police Department


“I would like to thank Larry for his 44 years of dedicated service to the Town, more especially to Fishers Island. His reliable presence as a FI Constable has provided comfort and security for the Island.”
Louisa Evans, Town Justice & Town Board Member


“I spent 3 summers on Fishers Island in the 80″s as the resident Trooper. I was blessed to be able to work with and become friends with Larry Horn. His knowledge, wisdom, and patients were and are something I have always admired. The residents of Fishers Island were very fortunate to have him as their constable, they could always count on his honesty and strong desire to help anyone in need or with a problem. I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to keep in contact and remain one of the truest friends I honestly can say I’ve had.
Congrats Hornsby, love you brother.”
State Trooper Jim Hochenberger, retired


“For a new trooper, coming to Fishers Island is intimidating and nerve racking. You’re mostly working alone. Unmarked roads and houses, not knowing anyone, and trying to figure things out. The constant of what we told troopers was to “call Larry”. Larry was the go-to for local knowledge. Larry was the backup. Larry and Mary welcomed troopers into their home. Larry was the greatest asset to the troopers on Fishers Island.
I’m proud to call him a dear friend and wish him the best.”
State Trooper Kevin Drew, retired
