On Saturday, September 29, 2018, the Cornelius Police Department and Cornelius Fire Department hosted their annual Guns and Hoses Charity Softball Game. During the game, Officer Patrick Maldarelli was given the Annual Guns and Hoses Service Award. Officer Maldarelli has been with the Cornelius Police Department since March of 2008, work as a patrol officer and currently assigned as the School Resource Officer at Bailey Middle School. Officer Maldarelli is a constant reminder to the community of the “Cornelius Way.” He serves his community each day at work, then dedicates so much of his free time to the same community through volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, helping local residents and participating in countless community events. Thank you for your service to our Community Officer Maldarelli!
