NEW ORLEANS POLICE DONATIONS
The union representing New York City’s police detectives has made a $50,000
donation to aid police in New Orleans and says the NAPO Relief Fund, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization
, is the most appropriate place to send donations to New Orleans’ beleaguered police officers and their families.
Michael J. Palladino,
President of the Detectives’ Endowment Association of New York City and Vice President of NAPO(the National Association of
Police Organizations) says this fund was set up years ago to aid in such emergencies.
“Our brother and sister police officers in New Orleans are
currently 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 worst imaginable scenario police officers can face.
“As the Vice President of NAPO
, I urge caring New Yorkers to consider the special needs of New Orleans’ police at this time. There may be many organizations that claim to assist the
police, but if you donate, you should do so with confidence. The Police Association of New Orleans, the organization representing New Orleans’ police force
, is working with NAPO’s Relief Fund to ensure that your donations will go directly to their members in need.” The National Association of Police
Organizations is a Washington, DC based coalition of police unions and associations from across the United States. NAPO
serves to advance the interests of America’s law enforcement officers through legislative and legal advocacy, political action and education. Both the NYC Detectives’ Endowment
Association (DEA) and the Police Association of New Orleans (PANO) were founding members of NAPO when the organization first formed in 1978.
