Law Enforcement Appreciation Night
Wednesday, May 6, 2015, 7:10 PM
The Boston Red Sox has teamed up with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
Fund to show our appreciation for the men and women of Red Sox Nation who serve as law
enforcement officers, corrections officers and first responders.
It's that time of year again!
The 7th Annual North Central Lodge #33 Economic Stimulus Package Fundraiser is scheduled for Friday April 24, 2015 from 17:00-21:00 hours at the Thomas Hooker Brewing Company which is still located (for now) at 16 Tobey Road in Bloomfield Connecticut.
The National Fraternal Order of Police has partnered with Concerns Of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and law enforcement associations across America on January 9, 2015 which has been designated as National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Please share this information with members in your states.
Retired police and other qualifying law enforcement officers may carry their approved firearms nationally under The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 and the LEOSA Improvement Act of 2010. Commonly known as LEOSA HR 218, this required qualification is offered by Herbert Furhman of HF LearnSafety Firearms & Security Training Center at 280 Kent Road in New Milford, Connecticut.
I am a police officer, and I have been angry. For months, I have heard the attacks on my fellow officers. I have seen the media and the Al Sharptons take common criminals and turn them into martyrs. I have seen people who have never worn a badge or put their lives on the line comment on police procedures.
The Connecticut State Fraternal Order of Police Membership has donated local lodge funds to purchase 32 - five gallon gas cans and fuel for those that are still without power in Staten Island, New York.
CT State FOP members delivered the cans and fuel to our Good Friend, Staten Island Resident, Retired NYPD Police Officer and National Police Week - Tent City DJ Vinny Giardiello.
Vinny is extremely dedicated, hardworking and not surprisingly humble in his grassroots relief efforts. He has organized food, clothing, water and shelter assistance for this devastated area.
Thank you to the Butler Company of Windsor, CT. for their assistance in securing the gas cans as well as their generosity in the use of their trailer to deliver this relief!
Thank you to Bobby G's Old Fashioned Service in Windsor Locks, CT. for their generous donation of the deeply discounted fuel!
