LIEUTENANT NOONAN TO RETIRE
Lieutenant Marty Noonan will retire from the Wyoming Highway patrol effective January 4th, 2016. But his career in law enforcement is far from over.
Lt. Noonan began his career in law enforcement in 1978 as a dispatcher with the Laramie County
Sheriff’s Office. In 1980, Lt. Noonan joined the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office under then Sheriff Chuck Ogburn. Lt. Noonan left the Sheriff’s Office to join the United States Marine Corps in May of 1982. During his time in the Marines, he was stationed in Yuma , Arizona.
After his honorable discharge from the Marines in 1986, Lt. Noonan joined the Wyoming Highway Patrol and was initially stationed in Wright. In 1995, Lt. Noonan departed Patrol and signed on with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office where he was a bomb technician and resident deputy in Wright.
In 2001, Lt. Noonan returned to Patrol and was again stationed in Wright. In 2006, Lt. Noonan was promoted to Lieutenant and stationed in Rock Springs with Division E. In 2008, Lt. Noonan transferred to Division Q where he oversaw Crook and Weston Counties in Northeast Wyoming until his retirement.
Effective February 1, 2016, Lieutenant Tim Boumeester will be transferring from Division D (Uinta and Southern Lincoln Counties) to Division Q to take over for Lt. Noonan.
Although Lt. Noonan’s WHP career is headed for retirement, his dedication to law enforcement and his community will continue as he takes over as the Chief of Police in Sundance. Lt. Noonan enjoyed a great relationship with the County Sheriffs, courts, WYDOT and the communities he served during his time with Patrol.
