Honolulu PD Honors Reserve Officer

Thursday, August 15, 2002

When Roger Piwowarski joined the Honolulu Police Dept. as a reserve officer he was required to pay for his uniform, jacket and service revolver. And if he went on patrol, he had to provide the car. That was in November 1950. Back then, as it is today, reserve officers receive no pay. In March, Piwowarski, 84, retired after nearly 52 years. The department honored him in a ceremony this morning as the longest-serving reserve police officer.
