The Winchester Police Department would like to thank Lt. Rich Shofstall and K-9 Ridge for their exemplary service to our agency and our community. Lt. Shofstall began his tour with us in November of 2013 and his dedication to our department will be dearly missed. K-9 Ridge has been with our department for 3 years and together they have exceeded all expectations for their service. I am saddened to see them go, but thrilled to see Lt. Shofstall grow in his career and to see him get the opportunity to touch many more lives for the Georgetown Police Department. We thank you for all your sacrifices and service, we wish for the best for you moving forward. Prayers for safety and success in your future. Chief David Benjamin
