It is with a heavy heart that The Riverside Police Officers' Association informs you of the passing of Riverside Police Detective Ronel Newton. Detective Newton succumbed to his latest battle with cancer late last night, October 14, 2020, at Kaiser Hospital in Riverside, California.
Detective Newton is the second Riverside Police Detective to pass away from cancer in 2020 and his passing comes only 55 days after the passing of Detective Aaron Brandt on August 20, 2020.
This is another tremendous loss to our Law Enforcement family in a year which has proven to be one of the most difficult in recent times. Please keep Detective Newton's family, friends, and all of Law Enforcement in your prayers.
