First Grader Honors Fallen Officers With Class Project

First Grader Honors Fallen Officers With Class Project

Saving a Heroes Place and Blue Alert Foundation Presenting "Charlie K" Honor Chair

Saving a Heroes Place and Blue Alert will be Presenting an Honor Chair to the Tarpon Springs PD & Family of Fallen Ofc. Charles "Charlie K" Kondek Jr. on February 17th at 9:00am at the Tarpon Springs Police Department.



From: Saving a Heroes Place Facebook Page



When the honor chair pieces are cut out, engraved, assembled, stained, and sealed, only then is it time to add the last thing. The rope! Why? Because this seat is already taken. An honor chair is not to be sat in because it is already occupied by a fallen hero who will be there in roll call with you before you head out to carry on the watch.
Be safe, wear your vest, and buckle up. -T

Remember Our 2015 Fallen K9 Heroes

Remember Our 2015 Fallen K9 Heroes Booster Fundraiser  <--- Link to Order T-Shirts



Blue Alert Foundation wishes to purchase ballistic vests & heat alert systems for K9 Officers who currently serve as a tribute to the 26 K9's who were lost in the line of duty during 2015.   
In 2015, 26 K9 Officers gave their lives in the line of duty from across the country. Gunfire contributed to 4 of these losses; 1 as the result of stabbing.  Eleven others were lost as the result of heat exhaustion. We wanted to create a 'walking' tribute to honor these fallen K9 heroes. We also want to take advantage of this opportunity to protect as many of our K9 Officers as resources will allow. Proceeds from your t-shirt memorial purchases will be used to outfit as many of our four-legged warriors as possible.  

This design was created by Blue Line Across America working in cooperation with the Blue Alert Foundation. 

The t-shirt design contains the NAME, DEPARTMENT & DATE OF LOSS of all 26 K9s lost in the line of duty during 2015.
