Town of Lexington recognizes retiring reserve police sergeant and 2018 Officer of the Year Tuesday n
Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Tuesday night, the Town of Lexington recognized a sergeant who is retiring from the police department, and the Art Rish Employee of the Year award recipient, at their regular monthly council meeting. Chief Terrence Green was joined by Mayor Steve MacDougall in recognizing the dedicated work performed by Reserve Police Sergeant Ed Rivers upon his retirement from the department. He served in the capacity of reserve officer from 2007 through 2018 and has volunteered thousands of hours to the community with his service. This help has also saved the taxpayers untold money by Rivers’ work as a reserve officer, a position that doesn’t draw a paycheck.
During the same meeting, Mayor MacDougall and Chief Green also recognized PFC. Jen Klinsic, who was recently presented with the 2018 Art Rish Employee of the Year award. In his remarks, Chief Green pointed out that PFC. Klinsic has worked especially hard with the department’s Community Action Team-or C.A.T. team. Both received a round of applause as well as the heartfelt thanks from everyone that was in attendance.
