  • AID NEEDED IN NEW ORLEANS FOR BLUE BEING DIRECTED BY NAPO AND National FOP

    New Orleans officers are working throughoutt the Hurricane and its
    aftermath without knowing or learning the fate of their families. It is
    confirmed officers are down. Sadly, there will be more names on the
    National Law Enforcement Memorial wall come April when they will be etched
    in 2006.

    There are many charities out there collecting for the victims of Katrina.
    Those wishing to donate directly to officers and their families may donate
    directly to National Fraternal Order of Police and National Association of
    Police Organizations.

    Officers are down in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Linda Sevilla, of
    FOPLODGE1 here in DC, says donations to officers and their familes will be
    directed by National FOP. Donations can be made online or by mailing
    checks to NATIONAL FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE, 711 4th Street, NW,
    Washington DC 20001. It is important to remember, says Carrie Devorah (a
    CCIA), that when an officer is on the street helping us in catastrophic
    situations, their families are home dealing with the catastrophe without
    them.


    NYC's Detective's Endowment Association executive, Sam Katz writes the
    NAPO, National Association of Police Organization's
    Relief Fund, is the most appropriate place to send donations for New
    Orleans "beleagured police officers and their families." The NAPO, founded
    in 1978, is a Washington DC based coalition of police unions and
    associations from across the United States. Michael Palladino, President
    of NYC's Detective Endowment Association and Vice President of the NAPO
    says this fund was set up years ago to aid in such emergencies. Palladino
    says "officers in New Orleans are carrying a double burden; the job of
    trying to maintain law and order in a devastated major American city, all
    the while trying to cope with their own pain and loss-of their homes,
    families, friends and their town. This is the words imaginable scenario
    police officers can face." Palladino urges individuals seeking to aid
    officers, the NAPO is working directly with the Police Association of New
    Orleans to ensure donations go directly to their members in need.
    Donations can be made at www.napo.org or sent to NAPO Relief Fund, c/o
    NAPO, 750 FIrst Street, Ne, Suite 920, Washington DC 20002-4241.
