IPD Investigator Michael Padula, who was killed in the line of duty nearly 18 years ago, was honored Friday by area police and the Badge of Honor Association.

A memorial sign now rests outside of the building at 514 West State Street in Ithaca, where Officer Padula met his fate on November 17th 1996.

Former Investigator and current County Lawmaker Brian Robison served with Padula and said he was a great cop and an even better friend.

IPD Chief John Barber calls Padula a man of honor, integrity and courage, who served his community with dignity.
