Sgt Riley and Shadow

30 years ago, a young recruit named Rodney Riley would join the Marengo Police Department; confident, ambitious and fresh from the police academy. He would go on to serve the same community for 30 years, developing his skills and becoming a true asset to the force. Achieving rank of Sargent would be proud accomplishment, but when he was assigned a partner a new sense of pride was realized. Officer Shadow joined MPD in 2010, being reassigned to Sgt. Riley in October 2011. The pair would attend extensive and continued training, maintaining their status as a Certified K-9 team by the state of Illinois. After 6 years of working together, Officer Shadow and Sgt. Riley will turn in their badges and retire together from police work. On April 28 an informal gathering of appreciation took place at City Hall, providing Marengo residents and their coworkers a chance to say thank you for law enforcement careers dedicated entirely to one city, its families, businesses and visitors. Wishing you both the best and hope to see you at Settler’s Days!
