Police Officer Needs Assistance!!

$110,225 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 1,056 people in 16 months
On Saturday January 28, 2017 at approx. 8:30pm Police Officer McNulty along with several officers from the Port Washington Police District, NY were conducting an escort for an ambulance with a patient in cardiac arrest. During that escort PO McNulty who is assigned to Motorcycle Patrol One was involved in a catastrophic accident that has left him in critical condition with injuries requiring numerous major surgeries. With a recovery that is expected to take years & multiple surgeries still a head, his prognosis is very much unknown. Since the accident, his wife has been by his side day and night as he remains in ICU. They are a family of 4 with a teenage daughter and young son who very much depend on the dual income to live. She will not be able to return to work in the near future if at all due to her husbands needs and it’s become apparent PO McNulty will be facing an early disability retirement. The Port Washington PBA & the McNulty family have been extremely appreciative for the outpouring of prayers and support they have received thus far. The PBA is now reaching out for donations of any amount to assist with future expenses and to offset the lost wages of PO McNulty & his wife. 100% of monies received will be going to assist the McNulty family. PO McNulty is highly respected both personally and professionally within both the NYPD Highway District 2 where he was formerly assigned, the Port Washington Police District and the communities he has served. Please help us help his family during this time. Thank you in advance for your support.

Today is a GREAT day and this is the update we've been looking forward to sending. It's been 54 days since Officer McNulty's accident and that long since he has been home but that changes today! Mike has been discharged from NYU/Rusk in NYC and he is currently resting at home for the first time since January 28th. Tonight he will enjoy dinner under his own roof with his wife and children. He still has many months of therapy and recovery ahead but will be able to reside at home for the remainder of that. There is truly no way to thank everybody for the support, generosity, prayers, thoughts, blood donations, time, food, visits, kind words and whatever else we may have overlooked. It's been overwhelming to Mike, the McNulty family, and Mike's police family. The medical staff at North Shore Hospital & NYU is second to none. Their expertise and Mike's never ending determination have made him strong enough to continue this recovery from his own home. Mike's positive outlook and appreciation for life is remarkable to say the least. He does not see himself as a victim and thanks god everyday for the second chance he's been given. Fighting through severe pain and discomfort we have watched him adapt and begin the long battle to overcome these new challenges & obstacles. Mike's perspective hasn't changed. For Mike, failure is not an option; it never was and never is. Home with his family by his side this man is unstoppable. We'd like to mention & thank the crew of cops (GC'd by Sgt Mike DiBiasi of course) who went to Mike's house and constructed the necessary modifications for him to be able to get in and out successfully in time for his discharge. Last but not least we'd like to once again thank the Port Washington Fire Department for supplying Mike with transportation home in one of their ambulances. They have been there since this all started and that support has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated.

To all of you who have been there for Mike, we cannot possibly say 'THANK YOU' enough times. We are all incredibly humbled.

Mike is now home...

Respectfully,

Port Washington PBA & the McNulty family

Friends,

We have some great news! Police Officer McNulty has been discharged from the hospital and addmitted to a rehabilitaion center. He was escorted out to thunderous cheers from his family & co-workers as well as law enforcement from numerous agencies. Also, bagpipes from PWPD's own LT Tom Barry. Great job Tom!


We'd like to give special thanks & recognition to the following agencies for yesterday's support with assisting Mike's transport: NCPD Ambulance, NCPD Highway Patrol, Nassau County Fire Marshals, Lake Success PD, Sands Point PD and NYPD Highway Patrol.
*Last but not least to the doctors, nurses, medical staff, security & administrative personnel at North Shore Hospital... You can't even imagine how grateful we all are. There truly are no words that can begin to describe it.

As always, thanks to everyone who has donated, visited, prayed, given blood or just said a kind word. We KNOW all of this has made a huge impact on Mike's recovery thus far. We will continue to keep you updated and we ask that you continue to support & pray for Mike on his long road to recovery. Please remember to share this page with friends, family and on social media.

Respectfully,

Port Washington PBA on behalf of the McNulty family

We wanted to post an update, as there have been many questions and rumors as of late pertaining to Police Officer McNulty’s condition. In an attempt to respect his and his family’s privacy during his recovery we delayed sharing this info.

For those of you who don’t know, Mike has been moved out of ICU and into a private room. He is awake, talking and slowly returning to himself. He’s gotten visits from many friends both old and new and the level of support continues to overwhelm everyone, most especially the McNulty family.

On Monday February 27th after in depth discussions with the doctors & medical professionals who tirelessly care for Mike, he has made the educated decision to allow the doctors to amputate his lower left leg. Due to the extent of the injuries, damage and after many surgeries it was clear to Mike that even if the skin & muscle grafting necessary were successful (additional difficult surgeries with many risks), he would never have normal use of his leg. He would always rely on crutches, a cane or some sort of device/brace to get around and most likely deal with constant pain for the rest of his life. This decision is expected to allow Mike a quicker recovery and a brighter future. After rehabilitation and the fitment of prosthesis it is the opinion of the doctors that he will be able to return to an active and involved lifestyle, which for those of you who don’t know was the norm for him prior to the accident. He obviously still has a very long road ahead with many unanswered questions and we ask that you continue to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Mike has received support from communities all over the country. The amount of people reaching out for a multitude of reasons has been tremendous and while we may not have answered everyone as of yet, none of it has gone unnoticed. In addition the support from the Law Enforcement Community has been nothing short of massive. There truly aren’t enough ways to say thank you.

Respectfully,

Port Washington PBA & the McNulty family

Mike is out of the ICU and into a private room!!!! He's awake, talking and has been cleared to eat solid food. This is HUGE news and we thought you'd want to know. The McNutly family and the Dr's are still requesting restricted visitation due to his need to rest and risk of infection so please be patient. Mike still has many, many more surgeries ahead and a final outcome is still very much an unknown. To be able to shake his hand and hear him say 'hello' made for a great day! Ruth wanted to make sure you all knew that your support... whether it was thoughts, prayers, blood donation or financial donation is overwhelming and not for a second taken for granted. Every time she sees how people have rallied to support Mike it brings her to tears. She reminds me constantly to please thank everyone on her behalf and that she truly has no words to describe the feeling. The outpouring of support for Mike is well beyond anything we could have ever dreamed. Once again thank you for all of your continued support and prayers.

Mike is our older brother. We are a Family of cops and are devastated about what happened to him. Mike is very strong person, physically, mentally and spiritually. God has made a decision to let Mike stay here with us and we are thankful for that. Know that God influenced the many life saving decisions that were made by the Police , Fire and EMS personnel that night that saved our brothers life. Here are some : The Police Officer who somehow found the super human strength to pick up that 900lb motorcycle off Mike's leg and throw it. The Fire/EMS Official yelling out orders as to how to treat Mike. Life saving decisions were made by the emergency room Doctors, Nurses and Staff at the Hospital. Life saving decisions were made by the Doctors, Nurses and Staff in the Intensive Care Unit on a daily basis. Decisions are still being made everyday that are making a difference in Mike's life. The treatment Mike's Family receives from the Port Washington Police Department during this difficult time is heartwarming. All of you kind people making the decision to make that monetary donation as well as the blood donation has been instrumental in saving his quality of life. Its just remarkable. We would like to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts and would like to thank God for giving all those people involved in saving Mikes life the courage to make those great decisions and for giving us more time with Mike. Forever Grateful NYPD Det. Jim McNulty (Retired) PO Trevor McNulty (Retired)

Ok - so here is my story about Officer McNulty. About ten years ago or so, when my daughter and her bestie (about 10?), and bestie's little brother one year younger were in my front yard while I was cooking in the kitchen. They were throwing those little spikey balls that fall out of the trees at each other. Little brother got carried away and threw a rock at a passing car. It hit the windshield and made a crack. The woman pulled over and went ballistic at the kids. I ran out, little brother ran in the house, up to my daughter's room and hid under the bed. All the time, screaming - I don't want to go to Juvie! I don't want to go to Juvie! Despite my trying to calm the woman and offering to pay the damages, she calls 911. Officer McNulty shows up soon after and orders her back to her car. He comes in the house and listens to the story. He calls little brother down promising he will not go to Juvie. Little brother comes down the stairs and Officer McNulty tells him that when he was a kid, he did the same thing. He threw a rock, hit a passing car, and hid under his bed. He said the woman (a nun), came into his house, went into his room and pulled him out and beat the crap out of him. So he told little brother, he was not going to Juvie, he was witnessing a payback. Nothing whatsoever was going to happen to him as long as he promised to forever be a good boy. And he is. I hugged the Officer. He actually stopped by once and we had a good laugh about it. The woman was paid for her windshield and little brother is a very successful college man. Godspeed Officer. Lots of people pulling for you.
