2nd Annual Race for the Fallen is a Success!

The 2nd Annual Race for the Fallen Half Marathon to benefit the Police Benevolent Foundation was held on Saturday, September 15th, 2012 at Red Top Mountain State Park. Each year, more than 140 officers leave for work and do not return home to the families who love and support them. The harsh reality is that the men and women of our local police departments who have chosen to accept the honor of protecting our communities often face deadly consequences that leave their families in dire straits. When we lose a member of the police force, we lose an experienced, trained community hero who gave his or her life to protect the community...

Remembering William Wright

In William Wright's world, everything had a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.
He had aspirations and dreams. He wanted to marry his sweetheart. He wanted to be a father. He wanted a career in tactical law enforcement. He wanted to build and operate a successful farm.
But his family says everything took a back seat unless he felt led by his Lord. "He was waiting for the Lord to tell him it was time to do these things," his sister, Mary Ann Cramp, said...04-30-12

 

PBA Member tells compelling story and offers heartfelt thanks to those who saved his life and helped him return to duty

On July 15th, 2011, my day started out like any other day on the job as a police officer.   However, before this work day would come to a close, my way of life as I had known it for 32 years would be changed forever.   On this date, at 4:57 pm, I was involved in an on duty motorcycle crash with a full size pick-up truck.  As I was proceeding through an intersection in pursuit of a violator, with my emergency equipment on, the driver of the vehicle turned left in front of me at the intersection of Morrisville Carpenter Rd and NC Hwy 55.

The Virginia PBA and the Police Benevolent Foundation hosted a second in what will be a series of PTSD and suicide prevention seminars on March 28th.

Posch and the two secured the use of the Norfolk district station...(04-11-12)
