Donation for purchase of new Bullet- Proof Vests and Outer Carriers
May 04, 2020
During the month of April, 2020’ I was contacted by, Mr. Dean Golemis, owner of Global Security and Investigative Services, 284 Main Street, Cornwall, N.Y. 12518. Mr. Golemis advised me that he recently read that the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y., Police Department had applied for and received a Grant Award through, PERMA, Public Employee Risk Management Association, Inc., in the amount of approximately $1,775.00, for the purchase of five (5) Point Blank Bullet- Proof Vests and Bullet- Proof Vest Outer Carriers, which would cover half the costs of these listed items.
When Mr. Golemis contacted me he advised me that he wanted to make a formal donation to the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department to cover the other half of the costs accrued for these Bullet- Proof Vest’s and Bullet- Proof Vest Outer Carrier’s. Mr. Golemis advised me that he believed it was imperative that my officer’s had this new safety equipment immediately available to them stating, “this is my way of giving back to the Community.”
Obviously, this was tremendously thoughtful of Mr. Golemis, the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department is a very small police agency in Orange County, N.Y., and it means a great deal to my officers and I that we received such a generous donation.
Prior to owning Global Security and Investigative Services, Mr. Golemis served as a Deputy Sheriff with the Rockland County Sheriff’s Department where he finished out his 20 year career there as a, B.C.I., Bureau of Criminal Investigations, Investigator, so he’s very familiar with the daily risks and dangers Law Enforcement Officers face everyday.
Once again, on behalf of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y., Police Department, thank you very much, Mr. Golemis, for your generous donation of $1,775.00 to this police agency!!
