UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N. J. -- Upper Saddle River Police bid farewell recently to two veteran police officers who retired after each logged in at least 25 years with the department.
Sgt. Joseph Farrow and Police Officer Kevin Campbell were given certificates of commendation by the department at a recent retirement event honoring both men, Chief Patrick A. Rotella said.
Rotella said Farrow was first hired as a dispatcher in 1990 and became a police officer in 1995. He's served as a field training officer, D.A.R.E. instructor in schools, and as an arson investigator with the Bergen County Arson Task Force.
Farrow also served as president of PBA Local 218 for eight years, Rotella said.
Campbell came to the department in 1991, and has been honored several times over the years for his bravery and for aiding his fellow officers, Rotella said. Also, Campbell was a member of the executive board of PBA Local 218 for more than 18 years, serving as treasurer and recording secretary.
"We thank them for their distinguished service and wish them the very best as they embark on the next chapter of their lives," Rotella said in a statement.
