Timothy M. Burke, a lawyer for the State Police union, the State Police Association of Massachusetts, said economics may have played a role in [Thomas G. Robbins]'s decision. State Police leaders reach their maximum pensions after 25 years, meaning Robbins had little financial incentive to stay longer.
Kelly Nantel, a spokeswoman for Governor Mitt Romney, who appointed Robbins in June 2004, said, "He will be sorely missed."
At the State Police, Robbins oversaw 2,350 troopers, 435 civilian staff members, and 10,555 square miles, from Nantucket to the Berkshires.
