In Remembrance

The legendary Jim Cirillo

Jim Cirillo

All of us here at Saber Group mourn the tremendous loss of Jim Cirillo: heroic police officer, dedicated family man, distinguished trainer, author, mentor, and friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim's family and many close friends.

Jim, 76, was a legendary member of the New York City Police Department. He died tragically as the result of an automobile accident on Thursday, July 12, 2007, in Brookfield, NY.

Jim was a great man who worked tirelessly in the effort to provide valuable training and education to the members of the law enforcement community. While having much to boast about in a stellar career, Jim was never boastful. He was also neither shy nor hesitant to let you know what he believed, and why he believed it. And there was good reason for that: Jim's beliefs were born of hard won experience, experience he gained not only through years of focused work, study, and training, but also through his involvement in numerous close quarter gunfights as a police officer.

I was fortunate to have had the extreme pleasure and honor to be able to work with Jim on several occasions. During those occasions, I watched Jim as he interacted with his students. He was a master instructor as well as a master tactician and shooter. Always quick to provide a word of encouragement or advice, to share a laugh or patiently answer a question, Jim was the consummate gentleman and teacher.

The good he has done in his lifetime can never be accurately measured. But know that it was an enormous amount of good, half as much of which anyone could be proud to have produced.

He will be sorely, sorely missed.

Respectfully submitted,

Mike Conti
