Slain NYPD Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo
On November 4, 2016, Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo and Sgt. Emmanuel Kwo, of the 43 Precinct in the Bronx, spotted a vehicle that had been used in an armed home invasion just minutes earlier. After a short pursuit, they and other officers were engaged in a gun battle with a career criminal. Sgt. Kwo was shot in the leg and is recovering. Sgt. Tuozzolo, a 19-year department veteran, was mortally wounded and passed away at Jacobi Hospital. Sgt. Tuozzolo, 41, was the married father of two young children ages 3 and 4 .
All monies raised will go to the Sergeants Benevolent Association Widows and Children’s Fund and will be used for education for the children and other needs of the family of slain Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo. Donations made are given with the understanding that such funds will be a gift to the family. Please keep Sgts. Tuozzolo and Kwo and their loved ones and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers during this extremely challenging and heartbreaking time.
OMG! While I have nothing against go fund me pages, I find it incredulous that one needs to be started in order to assist the family of this poor officer. I daresay that they should be provided for by the tax payer dollars of those they serve so unselfishly. I, for one, cannot think of a better way to spend the government's money than to give to the families of these fallen HEROES! After all, were it not for them, we'd be the ones being left to deal with the sub human creatures that roam this world! These officers AND their families deserve so much more!!!
Rest in peace, Sarge. May God watch over your family. Kieran O'Hagan, Ret. Senior Court Officer

Paul was a damn good cop. He was in my squad in the 26 when I was a rookie Sgt and he knew his stuff. God's speed.
