All of the McDonald’s locations had a great turnout with so many young excited kids having fun and receiving great giveaways such as free books and backpacks. Sgt. Felicia Thornton, Sr. Cpl Eucora Gray, Officer Soo Nam, and Officer Israel Marquez attended 3 of the 4 events hosted by McDonald’s. We look forward to partnering with Continental Society of Dallas and McDonald’s for next year’s African-American Read-In.

Lending a Helping Hand

On February 7, 2017, Dallas Police Officer Scott Jenkins suffered a massive heart attack at his home.  Emergency responders were dispatched, and paramedics were able to revive Officer Jenkins.  However, his body is weak and will need much rest to fully recover.  Officer Jenkins has spent the last 10 years at the Northeast Patrol Division and is currently assigned to the Bike Unit.  Upon receiving the news of their fellow comrade, officers at the Northeast Division did what they do best…a cookout.

Officers and members of the community joined forces for a fundraising cookout that was held at the Northeast sub-station on Friday, February 24, 2017.   Officers and citizens alike came from all over to participate in this worthy cause.  Citizens who could not participate in the cookout even came to the sub-station to simply drop off donations.  It was a heartfelt occasion that started at 11:00 am and ended once all the food ran out, which was approximately 4:00 pm. 

4-3

On February 27, 2017, Major Avery Moore took the money raised from the cookout, along with donations collected by the community and the Dallas Police Association, and presented Officer Jenkins and his wife with over $7000.  Major Moore conveyed to Officer Jenkins, “This money was not only raised by your fellow officers, but by the community as well.  And we all wish you a speedy recovery”.  Officer Jenkins and his wife passionately voiced their gratitude to their brothers and sisters in blue along with the citizens that came together in their time of need.  The Dallas Police Department would also like to express their sincere gratitude to all those who gave of their time and monetary contribution to this worthy cause.
