YPD, Sheriff’s office Recognize the retirement of Patrol Officer Albert C. Roth III


YARMOUTH
– On Friday during a special ceremony at Yarmouth Police Headquarters during evening shift roll call at 3:30PM, the men and women of the Yarmouth Police Department officially recognized the retirement of Yarmouth Police Department Patrol Officer Albert C. Roth after 32 years of combined service to the citizens of Yarmouth, his fellow Yarmouth Police Officers, and the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office.

Patrol Officer Roth began his career with the Yarmouth Police Department as a Police Officer in May 1987 and served in many capacities. Some of them were:

  • Patrol Officer
  • Motor Vehicle Enforcement Team Officer
  • Bike Patrol Officer
  • Motorcycle Unit Officer
  • Crime Scene Officer

During his time with our department, Patrol Officer Roth received numerous Letters of Thanks form the community as well as several Official Yarmouth Police Department Awards and Commendations for his service. Some of them are:

  • Letter of Commendation
  • Educational Achievement
  • Honorable Mention
  • Honorable Service
  • Excellent Police Service
  • Lifesaving
  • Officer of the Year

One of his awards was granted based on an incident that occurred on July 23, 1991 in which Officer Roth–while off-duty—heard the screams of a woman whose husband was face down drowning in the deep end of the swimming pool at Kingsbury Apartments. Officer Roth dove in to the pool and pulled the subject to the surface, restored his breathing, and saved his life.

Another one of his awards was based on an incident that occurred on November 12, 1996 in recognition of his devotion to duty when he responded to a fire on Country Club Drive and upon arrival physically helped evacuate many residents from the fire with no injury or loss of life.

On January 31, 2007, Patrol Officer Roth left the Yarmouth Police Department to become a Criminal Identification Officer at the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office Bureau of Criminal Investigation and has served with distinction for the past 11 years.

On Friday, the Town of Yarmouth has officially reinstated Patrol Officer Roth for one-day so he can fulfill his dream and retire as a proud member of the Yarmouth Police Department Family.

Al and his loving and devoted family; which include his devoted wife Julie, and his two proud sons Tyler and Landon, and the entire Roth family—with special recognition to his beloved father Yarmouth Police Department Crossing Guard Albert C. Roth, Jr.,— have left an everlasting mark of honor that is now part of the history of the town of Yarmouth, the legacy of the Law Enforcement profession, and the family of Yarmouth Police Department.

Congratulations on your retirement from full-time service Al from all at the YPD!
