Harry Hoeveler PPPD retired. I met Bill the first week he started with RTPD and thought that, he was too nice of a guy to be a police officer.
Well, I was right. He was too nice a person but, became one of the best officers I had the pleasure of knowing. My sincere condolences to
his family and the Ridley Twp Police Department.
