FROM OUR CHIEF COUNSEL

GUSTAVO L. VILA, ESQ - NYSFOP

REGARDING THE NYS SAFE ACT OF 2013

 

PLEASE READ: VERY IMPORTANT

 

 http://nysfop.org/flyers/NYSAFEACTmemo.pdf

 

As per FOP Lodge 81 Member, Mike Bannon's request,  For all of the members of Lodge 81 to say a prayer for his beloved wife, Donna Bannon who recently passed away after a long battle with Cancer.

 

Our FOP Lodge 81 Chaplain, Eugene A. Clemonms III has written a prayer which I will post on our Lodge website.

 

Mourning practices should be extensive, but not an expression of fear or distaste for death. Mourning practices relating to death and mourning have two purposes: to show respect for the dead, and to comfort the living, who will miss the deceased.

 

Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged. Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my afflictions and my troubles and forgive my sins. Psalm 25:16-18

 

So let us pass through the times of sorrow and now remember all those that have been lost for whatever reason, be it health or duty.

 

For our memories of the Blessings they have placed within our hearts will carry us through the hours of tomorrow.

 

Love & Blessings;

 

Eugene A. Clemoms III

Chaplain

FOP Jamaica Lodge 81

I have posted a 'Thank You' letter from Vice President, Edward J. Strohm Jr. of the Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation for his gratitude to our lodge for our contribution to benefit pediatric cancer research.

 

I want to also 'Thank', Executive Vice President, Henry Prins and Acting Sgt. at Arms, Steve Allgor for attending the Law Enforcement Partnership Fundraiser representing FOP Lodge 81.

 

The NYS FOP Executive Board has approved a new benefit provider for the membership.
We are proud to introduce, The Arbors, an assisted living community that offers discounted benefits to veterans and first responders.

The Arbors offers a program created by the Department of Veterans Affairs for wartime veterans and their surviving spouses. This program helps make assisted living an affordable option to many seniors who may have thought it was not possible.

As President of Lodge 81, I am always strieving to be the best avocate for the FOP (Fraternal Order of Police),

 

Recently, I donated a pair of my personal Mets Season Tickets to a worthy cause for a fellow co-worker at LIMA, Steve Russell in honor of his Mother for his TEAM LIMA's 3rd Annual Lauren Kristy 'CRUISE (AGAINST) CANCER' on Sunday, August 11, 2013.

 

I received a 'THANK YOU' letter from Steve which I would like to share to all Lodge 81 members:

 

To my friend John A. Mattia;

 

On August 11th we set sail on the Lauren Kristy in an effort to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

 

Thanks to you, it was a successful sunset/dinner cruise for my guests. Your generous donation to our raffle basket auction was instrumental in raising much needed funds going towards the constant research being conducted in an attempt to find a cure for this deadly disease.

 

Your contribution was acknowledged in our program.

 

As the organizer of "A Cruise Against Cancer", I wish to thank you very much for supporting my efforts.

 

Yours truly,

 

Steven Russell

 

Peace Officers Memorial Day & Police Week

 

Peace Officers Memorial Day came into effect on October 1, 1961, when Congress asked the president to designate May 15 to honor law enforcement officers. President John F Kennedy signed the bill into law on October 1, 1962. Each year, the president of the United States proclaims May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week of each year during which such May 15 occurs as Police Week.

 

According to the Legal Information Institute, the president is requested to issue a proclamation to: designate May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day; to direct government officials to display the United States flag at half staff on all government buildings; and to invite state and local governments and the people to observe the day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

The NYSAFE Act protects the privacy of pistol license holders by permitting them to notify a County Clerk that they do not wish for their information to be released publicly.

 

Under the law, current licensees and new applicants may make this notification to their licensing officer using a form approved by the Superintendent of the New York State Police.

 

Pistol permit information held by the county is currently exempt from FOIL and will be until May 15, 2013. At that time, those who have submitted the form will remain exempt from the FOIL provisions unless the licensing authority has refused to grant the exemption. Those wishing to apply for the exemption should do so by May 15, 2013, to avoid any disclosure.

 

You may file the form anytime. However, after May 15, 2013, if you have not yet filed an exemption form, your information may be subject to release under FOIL.

 

If you file a form in the future and your request is granted, your information will once again be exempt from FOIL.

 

To submit your form, take it to your local licensing office.

It is with a heavy heart that I find our fellow brother, PETE GANNON has passed from this earth on October 29, 2012. Pete was a Court Officer in Suffolk. Let's all say a prayer for Pete's family, Maria and his two children. 

 

REST IN PEACE
