The City Council honored retiring Beverly Hills police Officer Gary Castaldo at Tuesday's study session with a Certificate of Recognition for his 30 years of service to the community.
"This is a very special city. We get to meet and greet the nicest people in the world," Castaldo said after accepting his award. "This is an honorable profession and I am proud to be a part of the department."
A flag ceremony was held Dec. 20, 2012, at the Beverly Hills Police Department to mark Castaldo's decades of dedication. He joined BHPD on Oct. 14, 1982.
