Once again this year NFTA Transit Police Officers hosted an afternoon at a Buffalo Bisons baseball game for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County. Officers Mike Green, Dina Bigham, Justin Glodowski, Chuck Szymborski and Shawn Dalton chaperoned three youth who are currently awaiting a match with a Big Brother volunteer. The group enjoyed the game, some ballpark fare and interacting with the officers on a warm, sunny July afternoon. This is the third year the department has arranged this special outing.
On their way to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX for K-9 training; NFTA Police Officers Mike Bogulski and Casey Coggins took a detour to the offices of the DART police department to pay their respects regarding the death of Officer Brent Thompson, who was recently killed while on duty in Dallas.
They presented DART Chief of Police J.D. Spiller with an NFTA police shield in memory of Officer Thompson, on behalf of the entire department.
Officers Bogulski and Coggins are attending the K-9 training academy and upon graduation, will be returning home with their new four-legged partners.
