Antioch Police Reserve Officer Rupani Calls it a Career, Transitions to VIPS Program


On Friday April 10, 2017, Reserve Officer Frank Rupani ended his service as a Reserve Police Officer with the Antioch Police Department after almost twenty years.


During his time with the department, Rupani has volunteered thousands of hours to many civic events and other functions around the City as well as supplemented the APD patrol teams.


Rupani began his service on October 30, 1997 and has received numerous commendations and letters of appreciation from the public. Prior to his retirement from the APD Reserve Unit, Reserve Officer Rupani was assigned to assist the Parking Enforcement unit with a huge back log of abandoned autos in the City.


Police Chief Tammany Brooks said Rupani has been instrumental in getting the number of abandoned vehicles to a manageable level.


He will continue to serve the citizens of Antioch by transitioning to our Volunteers In Police Service (VIPS) program where his experience as a Reserve Police Officer will be a welcomed addition.
