This month, Chief Rickard spoke to Mike McGinn, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police, Jason Conklin Memorial Lodge, #957. Police Week was earlier this month, and communities from all over the country held live and virtual events to honor fallen officers. On May 7, Orange County, NY held its annual law enforcement memorial service which was hosted by the New York State Fraternal Order of Police Jason Conklin Memorial Lodge, #957.
Mr. McGinn is also a retired police officer and a Town of Monroe councilman. Chief Rickard and Mr. McGinn spoke about the memorial, law enforcement then and now, and various other topics.
