The SOA mourns the loss of active member Detective Sergeant James Stapleton, who died on October 2 after a battle with cancer.
Stapleton was sworn into the academy in October 1995. In September 2019 he was promoted to the rank of sergeant and assigned to Fourth Precinct. Most recently, Stapleton was promoted to the rank of Detective Sergeant for the Identification Section.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and close colleagues of Jimmy.
