Police Honored By Kings County
American Legion

Kings County Commander Albert Mazloom and Law & Order Chairman, Past County Commander of the American Legion Joseph F. DeFina, an­nounced today that on Tuesday, April 21, 1992at8pm., the Legion will honor twenty-two members of the New York City Police Department for acts of heroism above and beyond the call of duty. Also being hon­ored is retiring Deputy Chief Emil Ciccotelli, who served as Brooklyn Chief of Detectives.

The awards ceremony will be held at the St. Stanislaus Post, 100 McGuinness Blvd., Brooklyn, New York.

All precinct commanders and the Borough Commanders of Brooklyn North, Brooklyn South, and the Brooklyn Detective Borough Command will be present.

Brooklyn Borough President Howard Golden has proclaimed the week of April 21 as Kings County American Legion Law & Order Week, and he will present the proclamation on April 21.

Elected officials from throughout Brooklyn, along with Legion officers from the County, State, and National Organiza­tion will be in attendance. The public is invited to attend.

The above is a release from Kings County American Legion. We of St. Stan’s Post urge you to attend this ceremony.

I would like to mention one more thing. There’s a beautiful Memorial in Washington, D.C. memorializing those officers who were “killed in line of duty.” Police Officers, from all states. There is one difference be­tween the Memorial opposite Boro Hall, in Brooklyn, The Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.

Each year more names are added at the National Law En­forcement Memorial. “For acts of heroism above and beyond the call of duty.”

This Memorial was dedicated last October 14th, 1991. The funding is from private sources. There’s no help from the government. It is people like you and me who can have this Memorial live eternally. I real­ize times are slightly rough but if you can see your way to help, send a little check or if you can, a big check to: National Law Enforcement Officers Memo­rial Fund Inc., 1300 Beverly Road, Suite 305 McLean, VA 22101.

By the way, when you pass one of our men in “Blue” how about saying Hi! Have a safe day.”
