Family of slain officer angry after mayor removes cop's picture

Close

RIVERDALE, Ill. -- The family of a suburban police officer who was killed on the job is angry about how city officials are treating his memory. William Rolniak was killed in south suburban Riverdale in 2004. His widow says Rolniak is not getting the respect he deserves. For Rolniak's family, returning to the Riverdale Police Department was always comforting, because the department was renamed for the fallen officer, and Rolniak's portrait hung high in the police department's lobby, until a few days ago.
