Geneva City Council remembers GPD officer Timothy Peters

City officials and police in Geneva honored the memory of a beloved officer, Timothy Peters at Wednesday’s city council meeting.

In a unanimous vote, the Council retired Peters’ Badge #839, permanently removing it from department circulation. Peters, an 18-year veteran of the Geneva Police Department (GPD), lost a short but hard-fought battle with cancer on July 4 last year.

GPD Chief Mike Passalacqua praised Peters in a press release. “Tim was an amazing person, father, son, grandfather, and police officer,” he said. The resolution retiring his badge number describes Peters as a reliable and well-respected officer who consistently prioritized Geneva residents and readily offered assistance.

Councilor Tom Burrall shared his fond memories of Peters, mentioning that a sandwich called “#839” had been named in his honor at the former B&D Deli on Castle Street. Burrall expressed his appreciation for the resolution, adding that he misses seeing Peters patrolling South Main Street and ensuring adherence to traffic regulations.
