City and state officials joined friends and family at the Municipal Center for a retirement party honoring Chief David Dial. Thirty different speakers shared reflections on the chief’s career. While some seriously thanked him for his 22 years of service, others had a little fun with saying goodbye.
Speakers ranged from city officials like Mayor George Pradel, Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis, and City Manager Doug Krieger, to police representatives, community leaders, and family members.
The chief received many hugs, plaques and mementos for his service.
The ceremony ended with future Police Chief Bob Marshall and Krieger announcing the retirement of badge number 1. Mayor Pradel also proclaimed Friday, May 18th as Police Chief David Dial Day in Naperville.
