Lieutenant William Harrison retired from the Fairview Park Police Department after nearly 40 years of service.

Lt. Harrison was sworn in as a patrolman on October 19, 1975, was promoted to Sergeant on January 10, 1989, and to Lieutenant on April 19, 1996. He has been an Evidence Technician, a Technical Supervisor and a member of the Motorcycle Unit. For the past thirteen years, Lt. Harrison has served as the Shift Commander of the midnight shift on the Police Department. Lt Harrison has been a strong and decisive leader during his tenure and his 40 years of experience will be sorely missed upon his retirement.

Bill is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and has been a Fairview Park resident for over 35 years. He and his wife Kathy raised four children and have six grandchildren with another on the way. He is an avid golfer and, when not with his family, weather permitting, he will often be found on the golf course.

Please join us in wishing Lt. Bill Harrison an enjoyable retirement!
