Pinckney Police Officer Retires After 14 Years Of Service

7/15/14 - A part time officer of the Pinckney Police Department will be retiring after 14 years of service. Les Rodwell announced his retirement and shared his gratitude at a Pinckney Village Council Meeting last night. Rodwell says he is grateful for the opportunity to pursue his dreams with the Pinckney Police Department that was given to him back in 2000. He tells WHMI his plan to retire comes from wanting the best for the community. Rodwell began his trade with his desire to work for the Police Department back in high school. He joined the Howell Reserves in 1983 and continued on to the Police Academy at Oakland later that year. After becoming a certified officer, Les stayed with the Reserve Department until 1986 and was soon hired in as a full time officer. Over the years, Rodwell has moved back and forth between the Police and Fire Department and says he will miss serving the Village of Pinckney and its community. While Les will be moving on from the field of police work, he is still going strong as Deputy Chief and Fire Marshall at the Howell Area Fire Department. (DK)
