Great Work Recognized: On Wednesday June 26, 2019, Deputy Superintendent Michael Stratton, Lieutenant David Murphy, Sergeant Peter Messina, Officer Josh DeLisle, Officer Joshua De La Rosa and Officer Daniel Harlow were honored to be among this year’s recipients for the 2019 PAARI Law Enforcement Leadership Award. PAARI, the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative, was founded in 2016 and has grown into a national movement involving nearly 500 law enforcement agencies who believe in treatment over arrest and incarceration. Since its inception, the program has helped more than 20,000 people take their first steps towards recovery. We thank PAARI for recognizing the efforts of our officers as we salute them for their compassion and commitment to helping those in need.
