Riverdale police memorial moved after controversy

The portrait of a suburban police officer killed in the line of duty will hang in the lobby of the Riverdale Police Department after all.

ABC7 reported Monday night that Riverdale's mayor was moving the photo of detective William "Wally" Rolniak to what he said was a more visible location. It was relocated from the lobby to an area behind the police glass above a Xerox machine.

Rolniak's widow said she thought moving the portrait was disrespectful. On Tuesday, the police union said Rolniak's picture is back in its original location in the lobby.
