Richard R. Kelly Memorial ....


It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of a long time friend and police firearms instructor, Constable Rich Kelly, who died on Sunday, March 6, 2022.


Rich was an integral part of our core team of instructors. He was extremely patient, kind and competent. He always went to great lengths to assist a struggling student, help any agency in need and give of his own resources.


In honor of his service and dedication, a perpetual memorial award will be started in his honor by the Delhi Police Department Training Division. The award, in the the form of a plaque and certificate, will be presented to the top student in the NYS Firearms Instructor Course given at the J. Small Range in Delhi at a date to be announced in June.


The "Constable Richard R. Kelly Memorial Award for Excellence in Firearms Training" plaque will be displayed in the range classroom, with the name of the award recipient inscribed each year. A certificate stating same will be issued to the recipient to keep.


A photo of the plaque will be added to this web page when it is completed.
