A longtime officer of the Newtown Township Police Department has retired after 40 years of work. Jeff Werner wrote about the longtime officer for the Newtown, PA Patch.
Officer Jules Ferraro will be retiring his badge to spend more time with his friends and family. A veteran officer of 40 years, Ferraro has spent the last 13 years as an office run Newtown Township.
Known for his constant engagement with his local community, Ferraro was a regular face at events like the Middletown Grange Fair in Wrightstown and the Shop With a Cop event that took place every year at a local Target around Christmas time.
Despite his retirement, Ferraro will continue to volunteer at the Washington Crossing National Cemetery. Through his time at the cemetery, he also acts as a member of the Guardians, who render honors to veterans that are interred there.
“Every child in Newtown and Wrightstown knows that man. And not only do they know him, they love him. And they respect him. And that is what a good community police officer is all about,” said District Judge Mick Petrucci.
