About Richie

Richard Pacitti was a Savin Hill resident and Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Director of Communications and External Affairs before his untimely passing on January 8, 2006. Whether supplying members of the Department’s Community Works Program (CWP) to the Savin Hill Clean Up year after year, coaching neighborhood youth T–ball, softball, and soccer teams, or just lending a hand to a neighbor, Richard was the kind of active community member who would often be the first to roll up his sleeves and offer his service for any and all situations that would arise in his beloved neighborhood of Savin Hill.
