The following statement is from Hamilton Township Mayor
Kelly Yaede on the Passing of Police Officer Tom White:
The loss of any member of our Township Government
family is always heartbreaking, but when we lose someone who has made such a
positive impact in the lives of our community’s children - as was the case with
Police Officer Tom White – it is even more heartbreaking.
Through his work in our schools as a ‘Law
Enforcement Against Drugs’ officer and his leadership in our popular Police
Athletic League ‘Safety Town’ program that generations of Hamiltonians have
benefitted from, Officer White has touched many lives and worked to ensure the
safety of our young people. For that,
our community will always be grateful.
On behalf of the nearly 90,000 residents of Hamilton
Township, as well as our entire Township Government, I want to extend our
collective sympathies and our prayers for Officer White’s family and loved ones
during this extremely difficult time.
May they always take solace in the fact that his legacy will endure
through the achievements of the countless children he served across our
