Yesterday morning a large part of central Italy was
struck by a devastating earthquake. This tragic disaster has claimed the lives of hundreds of people, and words cannot convey the deep loss that has
affected so many of us. Our hearts and prayers are with them and the rescue workers who are frantically trying to save the remaining victims trapped
under the rubble.
Please help the National Italian American Foundation, and our partners throughout the Italian American community to
raise funds for our Italian family. To help in ANY amount, please visit www.ItalianAmericanRelief.org.
As developments unfold we will continue to update the above site.
Our Italian American community can do a great deal of good in the coming days and weeks, and we hope you will be a part of this effort.
Please pass this link along to as many friends and family as you can and please join in our prayers for our Italian family.
I am, as
Yours in Partnership,

One of the missions of our organization is to provide a close union for its members, to be part of an ethnic group of professional law enforcement officers who cherish the spirit of brotherhood and remembrance of their roots. I will make a concerted effort to increase our knowledge and understanding of the cultural heritage that unites us all and to develop an understanding and appreciation of the contributions made by Italians and Italian-Americans toward the development of our great nation and this department.
