So sorry to hear of this family's loss. My memories of Peter Chistolini go back to my high school days (1979-1982) in Homestead. He was one of my favorite police officers and was an example to many young people, whom he came in contact.

I had the pleasure of starting my career at HPD with Lt. Chistolini . He was a pleasure to have as a supervisor. He never made you feel that you were working for him, but working with him. He always made the job fun, a lot of good laughs and memories. Lt. Chistolini took care of his people, making us feel like we were his family. What a Great Man. My sincere condolences to his family I know you will miss him.

We were so sorry to hear about the loss of Peter. We send our deepest sympathy to all of you. I am so happy that I got to see him at our family reunion two summer's ago. Frank and I had fascinating and witty conversations with him. Sadly since then, we have lost several of our family members. May Peter rest in peace with his parents and the family members who have gone before him.

Pete loved the ocean and was always looking forward to the next trip on the boat.It was an honor to know Pete and He will be missed. To Pete's family We are very sorry for your loss.

LT was great. He was my Lt. when I was a rookie on Mids and besides always being patient, and a good teacher, you knew he had your back. We also shared and spoke about growing up in Mass. I salute you for all your service. Rest well my friend. Jeff Rome

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Pete was such a terrific, caring compassionate person whom I had the pleasure of knowing when I lived in Homestead a long time ago. As a teenager back then it was nice to know he was someone you could talk to and someone who would make sure you were okay. He will be missed. What a great man he was!

I Lived in the Homestead Area for approximately 20 years. (74-94)
As a fellow LEO in South Miami was aware of Lt. Chistolini's Supervisory skills and Valor. Remember one specific incident a hostage situation, with an armed subject. Lt Chistolini exchanged himself for the hostage and talked the subject into surrendering himself. No injuries to anyone. R.I. P. Good and Faithful Servant.

Such a terrific Lieutenant, someone I learned a lot about police work and myself. I had very fond memories about the people I had the pleasure of working with in 1980. Pete, I'll always remember you and miss those times, getting yelled at, by just about everyone in Homestead, except you. You were and always will be a true professional. You'll be missed.
