Suffolk Police Officers Honored for BraveryWednesday, April 20, 2005
Suffolk County is lucky to have some of the bravest police officers in the New York area. Last weekend, Bill Turley and a group of attorneys from our firm attended the Suffolk County Police Benevolent Association’s Silver Shield Awards Dinner. For over ten years, we have had the privilege of being Workers Compensation Counsel to the PBA.
The Silver Shield Dinner is the PBA’s night to honor individual police officers for specific heroic acts. One uplifting example was a group of three officers who responded to a call about a child laying face down in a pond. When the officers arrived, the child was not breathing. They immediately scooped the child into their arms, began CPR and transported him to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital. Eventually, the child began breathing on his own and was given a second chance at life. This was but one of the many inspiring stories of heroism heard that night.
Turley, Redmond & Rosasco salutes all the Silver Shield Recipients. We also congratulate our good friend and Suffolk PBA President, Jeff Frayler, on his installation along with the other fine officers of the PBA.
