Christopher Ridley Groundbreaking

Friday, January 25, 2019 marked the 11th anniversary of the death of Mount Vernon Police Detective Christopher Ridley, who lost his life after intervening in an altercation outside a County office building at 85 Court Street in White Plains.  Legislators proudly joined the County Executive, Det. Ridley's parents, and other elected officials and friends and family of Det. Ridley in finally breaking ground on a permanent memorial at the plaza in front of the building which has already been renamed in Det. Ridley's memory.
