The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department (MCSD) and the Domestic Relations Office (DRO) honored their own during a commendation ceremony held at the Montgomery County Courthouse on Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. in Courtroom A. 

Chief Deputy Sheriff Alfred J. Ricci was honored for over 40 years of law enforcement service and leadership in the community, in addition to other department members who were cited for their exceptional work.  The DRO awarded Unit Citations to their enforcement unit assistant director and the MCSD staff involved in the deadbeat parent roundups in June and November 2013.

“I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people on the earth.  I get to do what I want,” Ricci said in a full courtroom with his wife by his side.

Chief Deputy Sheriff Alfred J. Ricci, who joined the MCSD in 2000, was honored by Sheriff Eileen Whalon Behr and Lt. Thomas McDonald with a special wall clock plaque during a standing ovation.  Lt. Richard Clowser, Ofc. James Lee, Ret. Sgt. Albert Dinnell, Ret. Sgt. Frank Lepore, Ret. Ofc. Joseph Bogden of Norristown Police Department and Chief Kevin McKeon of New Hanover Township Police, who had worked with the Chief during his early career also turned out in support of his recognition.
Director of Domestic Relations Office Gary Kline presented Unit Citations to all participants in the year’s deadbeat parent sweeps. 

Kline said, “The DRO is receiving statewide recognition for their unprecedented efforts and money is going to children’s homes where there was no money coming in.”  He also said he was very grateful for the extraordinary work of the MCSD deputies.  “We would not be able to do this without you.”
