A Member In Need – Update
As many of you know last year Union Police Officer David Cuzzo became seriously ill on medication he was being given for a minor illness. As a result of this medication Officer Cuzzo is confined to a wheel chair as a result of this medication. Last year the Italian American Police Society participated in a fund raiser to offset some of Davids costs. The event was successful and I thank all those that participated. Unfortunately three months ago Davids Autistic Son Vincent was struck by a motor vehicle. He is recuperating now at home and attends physical therapy daily. Vincent's dream is to become a police officer. Due to his autism that dream will not come true. Vincent's Christmas wish though is to receive as many Police Patches as possible for Christmas. Anthony Cavallo of the Union Police Department has stepped up to the plate and will mount all patches received. Please take a minute to obtain one of your uniform patches and any surrounding towns in your jurisdiction. Any police patches from other countries are welcome also. I know we have a few patch collectors as members who may have extras.
Please mail patches to:
Officer Anthony Cavallo

Union, New Jersey, 07083
Executive Director Vincent Nardone
Italian American Police Society Of New Jersey
At our annual Christmas Party for the Big Brothers and Sisters of New Jersey, we presented 2 framed Patch Collections to Vincent.
