“We are deeply saddened that the person arrested betrayed the trust placed in them by this organization and so many others. Representatives of Survivors of the Shield contacted the U.S. Department ofJustice after potential financial improprieties were uncovered. The Board has been working with the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York. Survivors of the Shield was founded in 1988 and continues to lend support and assistance to the families of police officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duty.”
