NLPOA Members: Myself,
Inv. Alex Martyn, and retired Sgt. Kevin Triplett are being afforded the
opportunity to travel to Nicaragua and participate in the 2nd annual
Nicaragua/USA police training conference. The trip will take place Feb 1 - Feb
8, 2014. I had the opportunity to experience this last year for the 1st
training conference. The response and support was overwhelming. We trained 32
Nicaragua police officers and supplied them with an abundance of equipment. The
team was able to take 19 pieces of luggage that contained 40 vests, 75 batons,
40 handcuffs, 40 flashlights, 50 + holsters and handcuff cases. We also gave
them backpacks with other misc items. The experience itself is very humbling
and rewarding for all of us.
team also traveled to a village and handed out food supplies to the unfortunate
villagers. I have attached a link where you can contribute to our cause if you
so wish. The team has to raise $1,775.00 per member.We have a total of 9
team members committed to this mission.
are also accepting any equipment you wish to donate. Please get a hold of
myself or Inv. Martyn if you want to drop off any equipment.
