With great sadness, we announce the loss of our longtime volunteer, Emily J. Silva. Emily started at the Antioch Police Department in 2002 as a volunteer through our Volunteers In Police Services or V.I.P.S. She was part of the first class to graduate from our V.I.P.S. academy!
Over her 20 years of service, Emily held many volunteer positions throughout the Antioch Police Department; some of her jobs involved, handling mail, filing, handling events recognition, greeting members of the public, adopt-a-family, and serving in our records department.
When Emily wasn’t volunteering at APD, she often volunteered and served with the Ladies of the Elks (Past President), Member of Elks Lodge #1474, Young Ladies Institute through St Ignatius Church, and the Luso America Club.
Emily has been a part of the PD family for 20 years and will be deeply missed. We are grateful for the time she spent with all of us.
