Business owner helps with purchase of bulletproof vests – News – recordonline.com
CORNWALL-ON-HUDSON – Recently Chief Steven E. Dixon of the Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department, was contacted by Dean Golemis, owner of Global Security and Investigative Services at 284 Main Street in Cornwall. Golemis advised Chief Dixon that he recently read that the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson 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, for the purchase of five Point Blank Bulletproof Vests and Bullet- Proof Vest Outer Carriers, which would cover half the costs of these listed items.
When Golemis contacted Chief Dixon he advised him that he wanted to make a formal donation to cover the other half of the costs accrued for these Bullet-Proof Vests and Bullet- Proof Vest Outer Carriers. Golemis believed it was imperative that the officer’s had this new safety equipment immediately available to them stating, “this is my way of giving back to the Community.”
“The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department is a very small police agency in Orange County,” said Chief Dixon, “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, 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.
The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department, are very grateful to Golemis for his generous donation.
