Chief Fitzgerald indicated most of the funds received will be used for community outreach programs. Chief Fitzgerald would like to thank all who donated to the 2018 MM4PD campaign. A special thank you goes out to Steve Bozarth who represented BPD at all the meetings and collected the majority of our sponsorship's! THANK YOU!!
