On Monday, February 12, 2018, the Board of Police Commissioners held its regular meeting, as it does on the second Monday of every month. This one, however, was a little different, as it was Board of Police Commissioners Chairman Don Lewis’ last meeting- he has announced his retirement from the Board.
Commissioner Lewis has spent a lifetime in public service, from his time as a US Marine in the Korean War, to his work with the Orange Rotary, and of course, his twenty-five years as a Police Commissioner for the Town of Orange.
In addition to being chosen as Chairman of the Board of Police Commissioners more than twelve years ago, Don Lewis was named a ‘Living Treasure’ by the Town of Orange in 2014.
The Orange Police Department asks you to join us in thanking Commissioner Lewis for more than two decades of dedicated service to the Board of Police Commissioners and the men and women of the Orange Police Department. He will be missed, but we wish him all the best in retirement.
