NORWICH – The entire Norwich City Police Department turned out in full dress uniform Monday to honor Chenango County Court Judge W. Howard Sullivan for his many years of service to the county and its communities, presenting Sullivan – who will retire at year’s end – with a special plaque in recognition of his commitment to justice.
“We thank Judge Sullivan for his years and years of service to the community,” said Norwich City Police Chief Joseph Angelino in a prepared statement. “Not only in his pursuit of justice in a court room, but also for his years of volunteer service to the community.”
According to Angelino, the sheer number of organizations, boards and agencies that Sullivan has chaired or participated in are “too numerous to mention individually,” but all have one thing in common: making life better for those who live in Norwich and Chenango County. As an aside, he thanked the judge for his “many early morning deliveries of fresh bread” to the police station.
