Recently we had the opportunity to present some of our Centennial Badges to a few of our former officers.

Pictured are Lt. Thomas Lillagore (Ret. Cinnaminson PD), Tom worked for Riverside Township as a Patrolman from 1994 until his transfer to the Cinnaminson Township Police department in 2004. Tom was a dedicated officer who always went above and beyond for our residents, his integrity and dedication to duty set an example for the batch of newer officers hired after him.

Corporal Mike Rossi (Retired) was hired in 1979 as a Patrolman with Riverside Township until his retirement in 2011 holding the rank of Corporal. "Buckey" as we called him, was a consummate professional and a dedicated officer.

Police Clerk Mildred Abriola (Retired). "Millie" was employed as our Police Clerk from 2009 until her much deserved retirement in 2019. "Millie" was always smiling and was like having a "mom" in the PD looking out for us. We miss her comical phrases like "Some Beach, Some Where".

In the coming months we will be posting more pictures to recognize some of our retired members.

We thank them for their dedicated and faithful service to the residents of Riverside.
