PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A police chief on Long Island is retiring after nearly 40 years at the department.
William Kilfoil began his career at the Port Washington Police Department in July 1974 as a foot cop and he moved his way up, first as the district’s school resource officer. In 1993, he became the police chief.
Kilfoil said there are some cases over the years that stick out in his mind.
“We got involved in a major drug trafficking operation. The investigation initiated here and ended up in Miami, where they were shipping out over $13 million of cash assets from drug sales,” Kilfoil told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall.
