[ARCHIVED] Congratulations to the 2016 NRPD Award Honorees


In observance of National Police Week, the New Rochelle Police Department held its annual Memorial and Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, May 18 at the Greentree Country Club. The event honored department members for their outstanding contributions as well as the memory of those officers who sacrificed their lives in the service to the City. This year’s keynote speaker was New York City Detective Steve McDonald. In 1986, Detective Steve McDonald was shot in the line of duty by a teenage gunman and became paralyzed from the neck down. Today, he is a renowned speaker regarding gun violence and the power of forgiveness.

“This is a special day of the year when the police and community get together to remember our fallen heroes and honor those officers who served the community in an exemplary fashion.”, said New Rochelle Police Commissioner Patrick Carroll.

Police Officer of the Year was presented to Police Officer Christopher Guglielmo and Community Service Officer William Berry was named Civilian Employee of the Year. Nearly 100 members of the department were recognized for their heroic accomplishments and for the extraordinary work they do for our community.

City Manager Chuck B. Strome presented an award to three elementary students for their Police Memorial Essays. First place winner, Stephen Philippeav from Trinity Elementary school read his winning piece.
