On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Advisory Board members of the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation (FLEF), I would like to take this opportunity to re-emphasize our commitment to continuing our support for the men and women of the law enforcement community on the federal, state, and local levels. Whether it is in times of tragedy or through programs designed to promote partnerships, good will and cooperation among the different agencies, we want to be there for those who protect our safety and well-being each and every day.
We are delighted that Michael Greco, former United States Marshal for the Southern District of New York has joined the FLEF as our new Executive Director. Mike brings over 37 years of law enforcement experience and a longtime friendship with the FLEF. We look forward to Mike taking us to new heights under his leadership.
FLEF also recognizes that education is the key to success in life and we are extremely proud of our annual scholarship program that has helped fuel the educational success of countless students through the years. In 2019 alone, we awarded a record number of scholarships to the children of proud law enforcement parents and we look forward to enhancing the program even more so in 2020.
As you can see, we have updated our website to highlight various FLEF initiatives and activities, and we sincerely hope that you will regularly visit us to stay informed and involved with future FLEF happenings.
Thank you for your continued support in helping us move forward in the fulfillment of our mission. We pray that you stay safe and healthy in these trying times.
