Upon his recent retirement from active duty, and after 28+ years of professional service to the Darien Police Department and the Town of Darien, we today wish to recognize Sergeant Mark Cirillo for his dedication and performance over almost three decades while serving in uniform. Sergeant Cirillo ably served in Field Services as both an officer and as a squad supervisor and was a steady presence on the overnight patrol tour for many years.
In addition, he served as a Field Training Officer and as a mentor to new officers, a Firearms Instructor and as a valued member of the Southwest Regional Emergency Response Team during his long career. On behalf of the Darien Police Commission and Chief Don Anderson, we today wish Sergeant Cirillo all the best in his retirement and in all future endeavors, both personally and professionally.
The job of a professional police officer is not an easy one; Sergeant Cirillo performed the task with honor and distinction and has well-earned his retirement from active service.
In recognition of his retirement, the Department has now added Sergeant Cirillo’s name and years of service to a brick on the Wall of Honorable Service in Police Headquarters. This honor is reserved for those who honorably retire from the department after serving for twenty years or more.
