There was some media attention on police fundraising. This was the usual story about professional fund raising which listed our group along with the NJ Narcotics Enforcement Officers Association as being in the top ten organizations which were inquired about. The NJ Division of Consumer Affairs indicated that there was nothing illegal about our organization, but that consumers should be aware of the percentage given to charity before donating. As always these articles are inaccurate and imply that we receive all of the money but don't give out much. As you know that is quite the opposite. We receive a small percentage of the gross fundraising campaign and give a tremendous amount to charity.
The Italian American Police Society / Police Officers Foundation of New Jersey want to again thank the public for their support.
