HELP US TO BUILD THE NEW POLICE MUSEUM AT THE NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS MEMORIAL (N.L.E.O.M.F.) IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
It was my privilege to be a police officer in Florida for over thirty-six (36) years. I began my law enforcement career with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and in 1993 I retired from that outstanding agency with the rank of captain. After I moved my family to north Florida, to the State Capitol at Tallahassee, I accepted a new captain's position with the Department of Insurance / Division of Insurance Fraud. I retired from state employment, again as a captain, in 2003.
Now, it is indeed an honor for me to be named a Law Enforcement Ambassador and to work with the dedicated people at the N.L.E.O.M.F. and assist them in their fundraising efforts to make the new police museum a reality. The total cost for the new museum will be $80 million dollars and we are almost halfway there. All of the funds for the museum will come from private donations, from individuals and corporations, large and small, who appreciate and support the brave men and women of the law enforcement profession. The new museum, like the Memorial itself, will be a fitting tribute to those law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice (the names of over 19,000 federal, state and local law enforcement officers are engraved on the blue-gray marble walls of the Memorial).
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts and those of the N.L.E.O.M.F. too. Your donation is also tax deductible.
Also, Badge 149 - "Shots Fired" is the title of the non-fiction book I've written about violent crime in Fort Lauderdale during the 1970s. The 70s was the deadliest decade in modern law enforcement history and more police officers died than during any other decade of the 20th Century. My book is being sold by the N.L.E.O.M.F. at the Memorial gift shop and online. Although my book is available at other locations, such as the publisher and Amazon, if you are interested in obtaining a copy I would suggest you purchase it from the N.L.E.O.M.F.
I am very much committed to the N.L.E.O.M.F. and the new police museum, and the majority of any book sale profits I receive I intend to donate to the N.L.E.O.M.F. To date, I have donated $1,500.00 and I anticipate further donations by me in the future. My book's web site is: www.badge149.com
