Gloucester MA Chief Of Police To Be Tossed

The Gloucester Police Department is very active in supporting the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR), which is the law enforcement fundraising arm of the Massachusetts Special Olympics. Events that are sponsored by the LETR include the "Tip A Cop" fundraiser, the Cruiser Convoy, Polar Plunges, various 5 and 10k races, and "Toss Your Boss". All of these culminate in the "Guardian of the Flame" ceremony in which sworn police officers carry the Special Olympic Torch across the host country of the International Special Olympics.

I am proud to say that, after an event held in April here in town, the Gloucester Police Department currently holds the state record for a single night "Tip A Cop" fundraiser. I feel that we, as a police department, have a responsibility to use our positions to do the best we can for such worthy causes as the Special Olympics.

As such, on July 19 at 8am, I will be "tossed" from the 27th floor of the Hyatt Regency in Boston for the annual "Toss Your Boss" Fundraiser. If you’ve ever wanted to see the Chief of Police tossed off a building….pony up!!!. For the biggest single contributor…I will wear their choice of outfit (within reason…).

I know the timeframe is tight. I am humbly asking for any contribution, however small, you can make. And additionally, for any networking you can provide to help me raise money for the Massachusetts Special Olympics. Thanks so much in advance for considering this cause.

Donations may be dropped off at the Police Station c/o Christina Melillo. Checks should be made out to "Massachusetts Special Olympics"
