Nassau County Police Benevolent Association Unveils Fallen Officers Memorial
The Nassau County Police Department held its annual Police Officers Memorial Ceremony on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 in front of Police Headquarters in Mineola, New York. The event is held annually to pay tribute to its police officers who passed away during the previous year. The roll call of these officers, active and retired, is done at the ceremony with dignity and respect so that all in attendance can hear the names of the officers being honored, and many of their family members attend.
At this year's ceremony, the Nassau County PBA unveiled the new Fallen Officers Memorial, which was erected over this past summer. Featured at the site are six granite walls emblazoned with individual bronze plaques commemorating all Nassau County police officers who were killed in the line of duty since the police department’s formation. Many family members of the fallen officers attended the ceremony, and were gratified by the fact that their loved ones were honored and have not been forgotten.
The PBA worked on this project for several years and the contractor who designed it did an outstanding job creating a beautiful place of remembrance. This memorial serves as a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that each of these Police Officers made for the county and its citizens.
The project could not have been completed without funding from the PBA, but from the Nassau County Detectives Association and Superior Officers Association as well.
Here are some photos of the Fallen Officers Memorial ...
Port Authority of New York & New Jersey
THE PORT AUTHORITY OFFERS REWARD OF UP TO $20,000 FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE ARREST OF A FUGITIVE WHO PARTIALLY BLINDED A PA POLICE OFFICER IN 1981
Date: Sep 26, 2013
Press Release Number: 96-2013
Agency matches FBI reward to help bring fugitive to justice and Port Authority Police Benevolent Association offers up to $10,000 to bring total to $50,000
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest of fugitive Donna Joan Borup, who is accused of throwing a caustic substance at a Port Authority police officer more than 30 years ago, partially blinding him.
The amount matches a reward of up to $20,000 that the FBI today announced it is offering to help resolve the case against Borup, who failed to appear for trial in 1982 on charges related to the attack on Port Authority police officer Evan Goodstein. In addition to the independent awards of the Port Authority and the FBI, the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association said it would join with both agencies to bring the total reward amount up to $50,000 by offering a $10,000 reward of its own.
The Port Authority, FBI, and PAPBA hope the rewards will lead to information about Borup, who is suspected of throwing a caustic substance in the eyes of Officer Goodstein during an anti-apartheid protest at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sept. 26, 1981. Borup, an alleged member of a radical group advocating the armed overthrow of the U.S. government, failed to appear for her trial and an arrest warrant was issued in May 1982.
“Officer Goodstein has lived with the physical effects of this fugitive’s crimes for more than 30 years,” said Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye. “We hope this reward will encourage anyone with information on Ms. Borup’s whereabouts to come forward immediately so that justice can finally be served.”
“This was a heinous crime and one that has never been forgotten over these many years,” said Port Authority Deputy Executive Director Bill Baroni. “The Port Authority stands by our officers and their families and we will bring to justice this fugitive no matter how long it takes.”
“We will continue to aggressively pursue those who commit crimes against our officers and the public we serve, and no matter how long it takes, we will not give up until a case is solved,” said Port Authority Chief Security Officer Joseph Dunne. “We strongly urge anyone who may have useful information to contact the FBI as quickly as possible.”
“The Port Authority Police Benevolent Association is grateful for the FBI's and Port Authority's actions that hopefully will result in Donna Joan Borup being brought to justice for her alleged cowardly act,” said Paul Nunziato, president of the PAPBA. “Whether it is the September 26, 1981 attack on Evan Goodstein, the 1975 bombing at LaGuardia Airport or the 1993 and 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, Port Authority police officers constantly work under the threat of attack and violence.”
The FBI warns Borup is considered armed and dangerous. She is believed to be in her late 50s to mid 60s with ties to Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She is between 5 feet, 4 inches tall and 5 feet, six-inches. She has brown or blue eyes with brown hair that likely has grayed and may wear eyeglasses and baggy clothing. At one time, she worked in the graphic design and silk-screening industry.
Anyone with information about Borup’s whereabouts is asked to call the FBI immediately at 212-384-1000. Callers may remain anonymous.
