CALGARY, Alberta — A mother and daughter who both work for the Calgary Police Service worked their last shift together.
Const. Renata Cattoni retired Monday after more than 40 years in law enforcement, according to a department Facebook post. Cattoni was able to work her last shift with her daughter, Const. Amanda Maodus.
During her time with CPS, Cattoni patrolled multiple districts and worked with the department’s Major Events and Emergency Management Unit.
Close to four years ago, Maodus joined the force as a patrol officer after working as a dispatcher. Maodus said her mom and dad, who is also retired from CPS, inspired her to work in law enforcement.
Cattoni said her favorite memory of working in law enforcement was when she was able to present Maodus with her badge at graduation.
“There are a lot of ups and downs in this job, but if I had the opportunity I would do it all over again in a heartbeat,” Cattoni said. “I have loved this job and I am lucky to have been able to share these experiences with my daughter.”
The department said Cattoni has “undoubtedly made a difference in thousands of Calgarians’ lives throughout her career and we wish her lots of relaxation in her retirement!”
