Virus pandemic continues to postpone officer benefits

The best-laid plans to benefit HPD officers in times of need have – one might say – gone viral, as in postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The following have been rescheduled:

Sita K9 Memorial

The memorial ceremony in honor of the beloved Sita, the K9 officer who died earlier this summer was originally set for August but will now take place Nov. 20 at HPOU.  In the meantime, donations can be made at AssistTheOfficer.com in her honor.

Officer Cormier & Knox Family Benefit

Originally set to be a drive-thru barbecue to benefit the families of Fox Officers Jason Knox, who died in the May 2 helicopter crash, and Chase Cormier, who is still recovering from injuries, the Aug. 28 date is reset for Sept. 11 due to the threat of Hurricane Laura.  Donations can be made online at AssistTheOfficer.com and BBQ tickets are still available!
