Presidential Proclamation--Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week


As a Nation, we rely on law enforcement officers to keep our neighborhoods safe, enforce our laws, and respond in times of crisis. These men and women sustain peace and order across America, and we look to them as models of courage and integrity. This week, we honor their extraordinary service and sacrifice, and we remember the fallen heroes whose selfless acts have left behind safer streets and stronger communities.

Funerals in New York State

There are new limits coming for protests at military funerals in New York State.

Governor Cuomo has signed two laws to triple the buffer zone from 100 to 300 feet for protests around religious services, funerals, burials or memorials.

The state and municipalities will also be able to establish 1,000 foot zones around funerals on public land and require permits for related demonstrations.

Protesters who violate the law will face fines.

The laws begin to take effect in March of 2012.

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund was established in 2000 to provide financial support for the dependents of United States military personnel lost in performance of their duty. This continued an effort begun in 1982 by Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher, founders of the Intrepid Museum Foundation and the Fisher House Foundation. Following the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut in 1982, the Fishers sent contributions of $10,000 to every child who lost a parent in the attack. Until Zachary's passing in 1999, the Fishers made hundreds of similar contributions following military losses. These gifts, usually of $25,000, were intended to assist military families through any financial hardships they might face following the loss of their loved ones. This tradition was carried on by Zachary's nephews, Arnold, Richard and Tony Fisher, who quietly supported these efforts through the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
