On the evening of Thursday, June 8th, 2017, two Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Officers on bike patrol and another individual were struck by a pickup truck at high speed in the Adams Morgan neighborhood resulting in catastrophic injuries.
While we are withholding the names of officers at the request of the families, we can tell you that the two 3D officers are 4 year veterans of the department. Having dedicated their careers and lives to protecting the community they love.
Please join the FOP Auxiliary, DC Police Union, and the entire greater DC law enforcement community in supporting these officers and their families as they face months and possibly years of tough recovery and rehabilitation.
While both officers are receiving the world's best medical care and robust support from the Department, FOP and union, there will be expenses incurred by them and their families that will come out of pocket. We hope you will consider making a donation, big or small, to support these officers and their families in this time of need.
Funds will be equally distributed to the two MPD officers and their families to use as they see fit. We'll be updating this page over the coming weeks and months as their recovery progresses.
If you have any questions about this fundraiser, please contact Bonnie Cannon, President/National Trustee of the DC FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE AUXILIARY at firstname.lastname@example.org
