As reported on the Wilmington Police Department’s Facebook page yesterday: “[Wednesday night] was Ofc. Chip Bruce’s last evening as a Patrolman with over 27 years of service to the Town of Wilmington in roles such as DARE officer & School Resource Officer; he is a former Wilmington Good Guy recipient, as well as a soccer and hockey coach along with a mentor to many members in the local community. We wish him the very best in the future and hope he enjoys his well deserved retirement!”
If you’d like to publicly say “thank you” to Officer Bruce, I’ll be putting together a tribute piece over the next week. Feel free to email me your thoughts on Chip to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them below or on the Wilmington Apple Facebook page.
