On Monday, May 16, the New Rochelle Police Department dedicated a new Memorial Garden in front of Police Headquarters at 475 North Avenue. Created by Eagle Scout Candidate Paul Carbone in partnership with the NRPD, the garden honors the eight City of New Rochelle Police Officers killed in the line of duty over the decades.
The garden features the names of the eight fallen officers on memorial stones along with decorative plantings and gravel. Also dedicated was a memorial plaque bearing the names of the officers, which was previously mounted outside the former police headquarters at 90 Beaufort Place. The plaque had been in storage since 1998 when the department moved to its current location.
“The establishment of the Memorial Garden, with the rededication of our Police Memorial Plaque, comes at a very fitting time, in that we are approaching the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and it is Police Memorial Week,” said Police Commissioner Patrick Carroll. “It’s a very appropriate and special way to remember those who have gone before us.”
