It's Sid Caesar Day in Cincinnati

It's Sid Caesar Day in Cincinnati.

Mayor Mark Mallory declared it so to honor Clarence W. Caesar, a 52-year veteran of the Cincinnati Police Department. That's right: 52 years.

Caesar joined the department in 1955, working there 30 years before retiring. He took two weeks off, then went back to work as a crime scene investigator, a job he's had ever since. He's credited with helping send to prison many high-profile killers, including Chris Ballard, convicted last week of the murder of 11-year-old Tina Dukes 20 years ago, and serial killer Alton Coleman.

Caesar worked up until about two weeks ago, Police Chief Tom Streicher said, before going into the hospital and then to Hospice. His wife and children attended a proclamation ceremony at the start of council's meeting Wednesday, but Caesar could not. About two dozen colleagues showed up to support the family.

"Double Dipper Day"

Congratulations to Officer Ceasar, we need more assets like him in Cincinnati.

Of course I am surprised that the mayor and council supported such a day considering the extreme lack of support our officers receive from the city leadership.
