Former State Trooper, Senator Gallivan Mourns The News Of Trooper Ross Riley's Passing

"From the day a trooper is sworn in and dons the gray uniform and stetson, they, and their loved ones, become life members of the New York State law enforcement family. Today we mourn the tragic news that a member of that family, Trooper Ross Riley, has perished during a training exercise in Letchworth State Park. My heart and my prayers go out to the Riley family, to those who served with Trooper Riley and the entire law enforcement community across the state of New York."
