Inspector Ray Giacomelli
In Memorium To An American Hero
Ray Giacomelli grew up in Point Richmond. He graduated
from Salesian High School in 1975 and then from Los Medanos College
in Pittsburg. Giacomelli became interested in law enforcement when his
older brother, Leo, signed on as a reserve officer with the Albany Police
Department. After paying his way through the police academy, he was
hired by the Pittsburg Police Department before he graduated. That was
23 years ago. Ray is survived by his wife and two daughters.
