Our thoughts and prayers are with the officers, family members and community of Baxter Springs, KS as one of our brothers with the Baxter Springs Police Department was severely burned after responding to a domestic disturbance as a suspect poured an accelerant on him and another victim and lit them on fire. The Coffeyville, KS FOP Lodge #35 has made a monetary donation to the injured officers family to help cover expenses while they visit their loved one in the burn unit.
We are also mourning for those killed in Las Vegas late last night/early this morning during the terrible shooting at a crowded concert. The death toll continues to rise and early reports show some off duty and on duty officers were a portion of these numbers. #Vegas your in our community’s thoughts and prayers as well.
