After the resounding success for the December fundraiser that raised more than $22,000 for the families of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos the Suffern Police Department is back with what will become an annual effort to raise money for two worthy causes: The National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)

With the rancor, violence and vandalism that has plagued the nation this past year, this effort will allow people to show their support for law enforcement offers while also supporting the families of officers who have paid the ultimate price as all profits go directly to these two worthy organizations.

“It’s something that we at the Suffern Police Department feel needs to be done” said Police Chief Clarke Osborn, “We have been fortunate in that we have a great deal of support from the public and our community policing efforts have paid dividends.  There are many other parts of the country where officers are now being targeted for doing their jobs and keeping the public safe.”

National Police Week draws in between 25,000 to 40,000 attendees. The attendees come from departments throughout the United States as well as from agencies throughout the world.

The idea was conceptualized over the weekend and made a reality through the efforts of Dan Alexander and the team at Mainly Monogram in West Nyack. The artwork was completed very quickly and hundreds of shirts produced on a very short deadline.

The shirts will be sold outside of Suffern Village Hall located at 61 Washington Avenue on Saturday May 16th beginning at 9:30am.

Adult medium-XL are $15.00 and XXL and larger $17.00.  If supplies run out, the Suffern PD will be taking orders for delivery the following week.
