It was a bittersweet and dignified farewell Friday for a veteran of the UNCW Police force. The campus police department honored Major Robert Riley for 23 years of service on the force.

Friends and family gathered to celebrate his career, which has seen the campus grow from a relatively small school to a thriving university. Friday, Major Riley was presented with the flag that flew over the police department.

“Being in a paramilitary organization it means, it means a ton,” said Major Riley.

Officers on the force said Riley will be missed around the station, and that it is hard to imagine working without him.
