Tributes in honor of Officer Phillip S. Riley

  • Detective III - L.A.P.D. (Retired in 1994)

    Phil Riley was one of my training officers when I was a rookie Venice Division patrol officer in 1970. Phil was a soft spoken wonderful guy that loved his job. I was on vacation out of state when this tragic event occurred and was shocked and saddened to the core when I heard the news. I will always remember him.
