The office of the Lackawanna County District Attorney, Anthony Jarbola, recently donated funds to help purchase another new bulletproof vest for a local police officer. The recipient of the new body armor was Officer Bryan Besecker, Moosic Police Department.

The donation was made possible from drug forfeiture funds and was donated to the Adopt A Cop program created by the founders of Fallen Officers Remembered to help purchase this valuable, life-saving equipment.

Kranson Uniform was also instrumental with the purchase and fitting of the vest.

Sponsors and donations are still needed to help keep the mission going. A large percentage of Luzerne County and Lackawanna County law enforcement officers are not provided with bulletproof vests, as well as local K-9's, and veterans and military officers who are also law enforcement officers.

If you would like to sponsor, or donate any amount, or if you are a law enforcement officer in need, contact Jaclyn Pocceschi Mosley by phone at 570-760-9034 or emailfaloffrem@aol.com, or send your check payable to Fallen Officers Remembered, PO Box 2299, W-B, PA, 18703.

Jaclyn Pocceschi Mosley, Fallen Officers Remembered, President & Co-Founder, dedicated to organization and its efforts to provide bulletproof vests to the memory of her brother, VA Beach Fallen Officer Rodney F Pocceschi, EOW 6/23/03), who is one of those honored at the Hometown Heroes Memorial in Pittston. Fallen Officers Remembered is committed to bringing law enforcement officers home safely to their families.
