Sergeant Paul Reiher retires from Bureau of Corrections

  • Posted: September 7, 2016

Sergeant Paul Reiher of the Sussex County Sheriff's Office Bureau of Corrections

Sheriff Strada announced the retirement of Sergeant Paul Reiher of the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office Bureau of Corrections last week.

A 1980 graduate of Kittatinny Regional High School, Sgt. Reiher enlisted in the United States Army following graduation. During his 10 years of military service, he received three Army Commendation Medals, two Army Achievement Medals, two Southwest Asia Service Ribbons with Bronze Stars, four overseas ribbons, the Air Assault Badge, and the National Defense Medal. Upon completing his enlistment in December of 1991, Sgt. Reiher left the Army and, shortly after, began his law enforcement career as a Sussex County corrections officer in 1993.

A 23-year veteran of the Bureau of Corrections, throughout his career, Sgt. Reiher received numerous certifications from the Sussex County Prosecutor’s Office, the Sussex County Police Chiefs Association, the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association, the State of New Jersey, the Passaic County Police Academy, Rutgers University, Sussex County Community College, the Morris County Police Academy and the NJ State Department of Corrections.

In addition to receiving multiple letters of commendation during the course of his career, and the Sheriff’s Achievement Award in 2008, Sgt. Reiher was most recently presented with the Lifesaving Award in October 2015 for his actions during a medical emergency at the Keogh-Dwyer Correctional Facility.

Sgt. Reiher is a 1994 graduate of the 141st class of the New Jersey State Department of Corrections Corrections Officer Training Academy, the Passaic County Police Academy’s Supervision of Police Personnel Class, and the Police Supervision Training Program sponsored by Rutgers University.

Sheriff Strada congratulates Sgt. Reiher on his retirement and wishes him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.
