It was my honor to research newspapers, books and magazines and finally find your ID Card Photo and make sure your photo was put on this site. I wanted to put a face to your heroism in the Line of Duty. I did the research because you are a brother officer and no matter how many years past, you will always be remembered. Rest Easy Hero.

Officer Chiaramonte, it's not 38 years since your murder at the hands of a meaningless coward. We can only hope he faced true justice for his crime if not in this world, then in the next. You're children are all grown now, I hope and pray they kept you very much alive in their hearts and minds.

Your agency is a piece of history now, and you are a part of that history, albeit a tragic and sad one.

God Bless and may you continue to eternally Rest in Peace, Brother.
