Retirement ceremonies take on a variety of tones from somber to jubilant. Friday’s ceremony honoring newly retired Los Alamos Police Lt. Reggie Briggle’s ran the gamut.
The standing-room-only crowd assembled in the police station to express their gratitude and say their farewells, joked, weeped and shared many memories with the longtime police officer.
“We’re all here to thank Reggie for his 20 years of absolutely dedicated service to the police department,” Police Chief   Wayne Torpy said. “I came here almost six years ago and Reg was one of the first persons I met. I wasn’t here very long when my mom passed away back in Florida … I left almost immediately for Florida.
“My phone rang as I was leaving the funeral home and it was Reggie – He told me he and others had arrived to be with me for my mom’s funeral. I will never, ever in my life forget that. I can tell you a lot about this man … he represents so much more than a policeman … his caring for the people who work here and the people he served … I can give you a hundred stories of the things he does to make things better around here … We’re going to miss him terribly … He cannot be replaced.”
