YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown Police Officer Tony Tulipano retired Wednesday after 24 years of service with the department.
Tulipano began in Youngstown as a community police officer and has been on patrol for most of his career.
He said the job changed a lot in the city, mostly because crime has gone down.
“Today it’s a lot of patrolling, a lot of community policing. They definitely want us to talk more to the businesses in the county and everybody, and it’s really good.”
Tulipano started as a Mill Creek police officer before joining the Youngstown Police Department.
