Review for American Federation Of Police And Concerned Citizens Inc, Titusville, FL, USA
My best friend in high school was the son of a police officer and I saw what occurred at a more personal level. Cops are inevitably put into impossible positions and face very real risks. I've seen what occurs when these men (and women) are killed or injured on the job--and what happens to the family when this happens.
While we might argue about some of the problems inherent with policing in this country, these are people who put themselves at risk. When bad things happen, it is their families that usually end up suffering the most. American Federation of Police & Concerned Citizens is there to help out. They do it quickly and without a lot of fanfare, but seem to do it quite well. When I was in the area a while back, I stopped by and saw staff and volunteers wrapping presents for the children at Christmas time and giving careful thought to what might be appropriate for a given child.
I was impressed by what they are accomplishing. They are not very visible, but do good things.
