The daughter of a slain NYPD detective is pleading for the return of a replica of her father’s badge stolen from her car in Westchester County.
The small badge was among three taken from her vehicle in Pelham Manor by crooks who targeted several vehicles on April 9, according to Carla Caccavale.
Her father, Detective George Caccavale was gunned down in 1976 when she was just 20 days old. The 11-year veteran was shot and killed while off duty working security for a check cashing store.
There are several memorials that bear the 33-year-old’s name, according to the news report, and a canine with the NYPD is also named after Caccavale.

“Even though I don’t have any memories of him, my mom did an incredible job keeping him very present in my life,” she tearfully told Westchester’s News 12.

She still has her father’s actual badge, along with his hat. But the mini replica badge was also precious to her, she said. The other two small replica badges were gifts given to her sons by the NYPD.

“Someone who is clearly beneath the law has these badges and they just don’t deserve to carry these badges,” she told the news outlet. “I was hoping to get them back.”
