Holliston Auxiliary Police Honored Three Officers

by Lieutenant Craig Denman

On September 10, 2014, The Holliston Auxiliary Police honored three officers for their off-duty activities worthy of recognition:

Officer Judith Rizoli: On June 15, 2014 at approximately 2:05pm, Rizoli was working as a function manager at The Sherborn Inn, when she was alerted to a woman who was choking and nearly unconscious. Officer Rizoli performed the Heimlich Maneuver until the patient appeared to get her color back and became more alert. The patient was moved to the floor and placed in a recovery position where she coughed up the food choking her. The patient was subsequently transported to the hospital. Due to Officer Rizoli’s quick response and skilled medical training she was able to save this woman’s life. Undoubtedly her family is grateful for Officer Rizoli’s assistance and the members of the Holliston Auxiliary Police express deep pride in acknowledging her exemplary actions on that day. Officer Rizoli received a Letter of Distinguished Service for her life saving efforts.

Officer Michael Hamlet: was honored for his service to our country as a member of the United States Air Force Reserve where he is a Senior Master Sergeant and was deployed to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan with the 455th Expeditionary Aerial Port Squadron serving as Superintendent, Special Handling. SMSgt Hamlet managed, coordinated, distributed and facilitated vitally important components and services to our troops during the Afghanistan War. The Holliston Auxiliary Police gratefully acknowledge his service to our country with our deepest admiration and respect for his sacrifice and commitment to his fellow service members and The United States of America.

Sergeant Joseph Cibotti: was honored for his participation in Bugles Across America, an organization created and dedicated to the purpose of providing a live bugler to serve in honoring veterans at military funerals. The families of veterans who are privileged to hear his bugle play taps at their loved ones funeral can only feel the sense of honor and dignity rightfully bestowed upon those who have served our country. The Holliston Auxiliary Police express deep pride and admiration for his participation in such a worthy endeavor.
