He spent a half century serving and protecting the people of Savannah, but Clifford Perry is also being remembered for the impact he had on many of the police officers he worked with.

Mr. Perry, as we was called by those who knew him, passed away this week. Perry joined the department shortly after it integrated and worked thousands of cases as an officer and detective.

He also helped mentor many in the department, like Cpt. DeVonn Adams.

"And he never hesitated to share those experiences, both personally and professionally, with anyone in a blue uniform.  No matter your agenda or your race. We were all blue to him. He respected us and treated us like he would his own kids,” said Cpt. Adams.

Perry was 81 years old.
