Township honors Green for 25 years of service

FLINT TWP. — With his retirement scheduled for March 31, Officer Paul Green from the Flint Township Police Department was honored with a proclamation from the Board of Trustees at its Feb. 22 meeting.

Supervisor Karyn Miller read the proclamation aloud to the audience, covering various highlights of Green’s 25-year career with the department. Green most recently was assigned as a patrol officer, “playing an integral part in the day to day prevention of crime, traffic safety and enforcement, investigating crimes and responding to 911 calls for assistance,” Miller read. During his career, Green also served as a Road Patrol Sergeant; detective specializing in domestic violence cases; detective assigned to the auto theft unit; and patrol officer assigned to the Genesee Valley Mall.

“Officer Green is known for his dependability, trustworthiness, honest, sincere and steadfast approach to the public and the officers he worked with,” Miller read. During his career, Green received numerous service awards, including the Citation for Professional Excellence and Unit Citation for Professional Excellence.

After the proclamation was read, Chief of Police George Sippert presented Green with his duty gun and retirement badge.

“Paul hired in a couple of weeks before me in 1986,” Sippert said. “We’ve spent time working together, and I remember the days out investigating serious accidents and Paul was our resident expert in photography.”

Green and his wife, Sandy, will be moving to Tennessee after his retirement.
