KISS Drummer Eric Singer Gets Sworn In as an Honorary Police Officer

September 11, 2019

Since 1991, Eric Singer has been stationed at the drum kit for KISS. Now Singer is officially an honorary member of the Wharton, TX Police Department. 

Dressed in full costume and makeup, Singer was sworn in by Chief Terry David Lynch (dressed in a KISS t-shirt), who accepted the lifetime position of a Honorary Corporal. In a letter written by Lynch, "On behalf of Chief Terry David Lynch, and the men and women of the Wharton Police Department, we appoint you to the rank of Honorary Corporal with our department, in grateful acknowledgement of the honor and respect you show all of America’s dedicated law enforcement heroes and their families.

The Corporal badge presented to you today has been selflessly worn by many within our department and today, it begins a new chapter with you. We ask that you display it proudly as it represents our commitment to protect those who call on us in times of danger, and in remembrance of the nearly 24,000 officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice since 1791."
