The Board of Aldermen saluted three Wooster Square cops Monday night for their exemplary community policing.
The board gave official citations to Sgts. Tammi Means and Herb Johnson (pictured), and Officer Ralph Consiglio, son of a now-retired Wooster Square beat cop.
The recognition was initiated by Wooster Square Alderwoman Mike Smart, who’s in his last month on the board before assuming the role of city clerk. All three cops work in Smart’s Ward 8.
Unlike other police citations, the recognition wasn’t bestowed for any particular deed, but just for being great neighborhood cops and being very responsive to the community.
“Thank you for your dedicated police service,” the citations read. Aldermen praised the cops as role models for community policing.
Sgt. Johnson said he was humbled by the award. Sgt. Means (pictured) said the award demonstrates the importance of communication.
Officer Consiglio was out on patrol.

All three are the children of former police officers, who were raised in a way that lends itself to caring, commitment, dedication, and focusing their lives on serving the public. Thank God they followed in the footsteps of their parents, who were the true essence of community policing a long time before someone else gave it that name, and tried to take credit for souls of these officers. Thank You, Tammi, and Tracy. Thank You, Herby,and Herb. Thank You Ralph and Andy. Merry Christmas.
Thank you Sgt. Johnson.
For many of us in Fair Haven you had our recognition since the first time you came. That’s so truth the communication and trust that you and your officer are building with our community it’s working! Good listener and great personality to talk to us.
Thank you, thank you to the other officers too.
