Angel Chirillo

"Tomorrow Is Not Promised"

Angel Chirillo, 43, was born in Daytona Beach. Angel loves her father, Joe, and mother, Willie, and her two sisters and brother. She enjoyed summer trips to New York and wet and wild water park as a child. And until this day, she values her family. She has three children and one grandson of her own.

Angel attributes the greatest Influence on who she is today to her parents. “Both parents are hardworking, selfless and humble.” This hard work translates to her profession as a sergeant for the Daytona Beach Police Dept. Her time with the Department saw her hold different positions in patrol, crime scene investigator, Office of Professional Standards, Honor Guard Unit, and now Sergeant. That hard work ethic learned from her parents aided in receiving honors such as Chief’s Award, Medal of Merit, Person’s Crime Commendation, and Honor Guard Commendation.

Angel, along with her Willie who also joined the DBPD, holds a unique distinction. They became the first Mother/Daughter duo working for the Police department. “Working alongside my Mother Willie is my greatest career accomplishment.”

Off duty Angel enjoys traveling, riding motorcycles, and attending and being involved in sporting/outdoors activities. She’s apart of Hot Throttle Divas Motorcycle Club and participates in all events related to community activities hosted by Daytona Beach Police Department (toy drives, back to school events, National night out, shop with a COP).

“Good things don’t come easy; you have to work because nothing will be handed to you.” She admits that she has some things to improve upon personally. One being taking on too many projects, learning to say “no” more often. “I feel like I’m too dependable sometimes.” Yet, she still describes herself as joyful, optimistic, and loyal.

“How I want to be remembered? Happy and nothing but gratitude for the life I lived, I did all of the things that I loved, I lived every day to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.”
