COPS Donation

The 54th Recruit Officer Class (ROC) from the Western Massachusetts Police Academy recently made a $500 donation to the New England Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).  As the 54th ROC neared the end of its training, the class had a significant surplus in their class fund and wanted to utilize it for a community or charitable function.  The student officers knew that a representative from Concerns of Police Survivors was going to make a presentation to the class in their final week.  Upon the conclusion of Doris Beauregards’s C.O.P.S. presentation, representatives from the class presented her with the donation check on behalf of the 54th ROC.  Pictured making the donation are Class President Cassie DeSousa (UMASS Worcester PD), Doris Beauregard of C.O.P.S., Class Vice-President Joseph Casey (West Springfield PD), and Class Leader Dalton Boglisch (Agawam PD).
