 NORTH BEACH, MD
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 bcannon@dc-fop.org  .

Like the rest of the Adams Morgan community, and people across DC, we were deeply saddened to hear the news about Officers Alen Bukvic and Richard Duranne and DOT employee Pamela Ann Johnson being struck and injured by a pickup truck in June. Thank you for your help and bless you for all that you're doing for the officers, Ms. Johnson, and their families.

I hope that both of these officers recover from their injuries. I'm sure they have a long road to go but my prayers and thoughts go out to them and their families.
