Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick issued a proclamation honoring Captain Michael Rogers on his retirement from the City of Tonawanda Police Department.
A City of Tonawanda resident and graduate of Tonawanda High School, Michael Rogers began his career with the City of Tonawanda Police Department in 1999. He quickly moved up the ranks, being promoted to detective in 2003, lieutenant in 2010 and captain in 2013. In addition to his work for the police department, he is a participating member of the John R. Oishei Foundation Safety Net Group and liaison for the Erie County Opioid Task Force. Captain Rogers received a state award for outstanding work in DWI enforcement in 1999 and received the Exchange Club of the Tonawanda’s Officer of the Year Award in 2018.
“Captain Rogers has had a tremendous career with the City of Tonawanda Police Department and has gone above and beyond to serve and protect our community,” said Legislator Hardwick. “I thank him for his longstanding dedication to public safety and wish him the best in his retirement.”
