Today, is a bittersweet day for us as we congratulate Sergeant Will Dee on his well earned retirement, but we also have to say good bye to him as well.
Will was born and raised in Florida, and ultimately found his way to California after enlisting in the United States Coast Guard In 1987. During this time, he was stationed in Alameda, but also did law enforcement patrols up and down the west coast of California and as far north as Alaska. After serving for 5 years, Will then attended the Napa Valley Police Academy.
Upon his graduation from the academy, he was hired with the Moffett Field Police Department In 1993, where he stayed until he joined us in 1995.
During his time with Antioch, Will has held multiple assignments including patrol, community policing, fraud investigator, homicide investigator, SWAT, Field Training Officer, and firearms instructor. Will was promoted to the rank of Police Corporal in 2002, and later again to Police Sergeant in 2008 where he has remained since.
After he signs off for his final graveyard shift, he can know he’s touched many of us, made lifelong friends, and most definitely left this place better than he found it 25 years ago. We wish Sergeant Dee, the happiest of retirements and hope he enjoys it with his wife, children and new grandchild!
