Nearly 100 members of the Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office were recognized or promoted by newly installed Sheriff Rochelle Bilal last Thursday at a ceremony at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 5 headquarters.
More than 200 family members were in attendance for the historic event. Elected last November, Bilal is the first women elected to that office on a fulltime basis.
“This was an important ceremony for the employees of the sheriff’s office and it was long overdue,” Bilal said. “The ceremony was a great opportunity to build the morale the new rank and file employees, especially with the new administration transitioning into the sheriff’s office.”
