Greece Police Officer Jon Ritter was one of the first emergency responders who arrived on Lake Road last Christmas Eve. He was on his way to work when he came across the scene where four West Webster firefighters were shot while responding to a fire. Officer Ritter worked to keep people from driving down the road into the line of danger. He sustained injuries during that time.
After 20 years with the Greece Police Department, Officer Ritter is retiring this week, effective Thursday.
News10NBC wants to thank him for his service to our area over the past two decades and his acts of bravery on this day last year.
