Eagle Award Recipient – Sgt. William Revelle January 2020

 January 2020: Jim Bickford and Brad Pierce presented the award to Sgt. Revelle.  Jim Bickford and Brad Pierce presented the award to Sgt. Revelle. 

Sgt. Bill Revelle has been with the Aurora Police Department since 1994. He joined our traffic unit as the MET Sergeant in 2010. While in traffic he has organized many Fallen Officer Processions, far too many to count. Sgt Revelle has not only planned these events for the Aurora Police Department, but he has also been called upon to be an instrumental planning member for processions metro-wide. Sgt. Revelle puts several hours into making sure every detail is thought of and executed. He trains for many hours with all agencies to make sure each member knows every detail of the procession from roads, turns and hand signals so that they are flawless for the families.

As if this isn’t enough, Sergeant Revelle has also put together many traffic details for visits from the President and Vice President of the United States throughout his tenure in this assignment.  Truth be told, there have been several political figures that have benefited from Sgt Revelle’s expertise when they have come through Aurora. The planning and execution of these events are not easy as there are many details to consider when working with the Secret Service and other federal agencies.

Sgt. Revelle has always put maximum effort into his various assignments at APD, from patrolman, to DART, to Traffic, and now in his new assignment in the Narcotics Unit. He is a Sergeant that works in the field with his team running radar, getting people from their vehicles in snowstorms, and helping during protests.

The men and women of the APD look up to him, knowing that his heart is with them and that their safety, along with the safety of the public, is a high priority to him.

Congratulations Sgt. Revelle on this award.
