The Needham Police Union strives on making a difference in people’s lives. Every year with the charitable donations that we receive, we make it a point to give back to our community. We have donated to numerous charities this year and contributed to local organizations, which include, but are not limited to:
NHS Boosters Club, Powder Puff Football, YMCA Summer Camp, Needham Rotary Club, NHS Girl’s Basketball, NHS Cheerleaders, Needham History Center, Lions Club, Friends of Needham Elderly, High Rock School Camp, Vietnam Vets of Massachusetts, American Legion Baseball, Johnny Mac Baseball Club, NHS George Dennett Distinguished Career Award, NHS Spelling Bee, Peewee A’s Hockey, Special Olympics, Project Smile, Cops for Kids With Cancer and Red Sox to Home Plate Jimmy Fund.
The Needham Police Union is also proud to recognize Randy Mendez as this year’s recipient of our annual Needham Police Union Scholarship. Jaclyn O’Neil is this year’s recipient of our annual Anti-Bullying Scholarship. We wish both recipients the best of luck with their future endeavors.
As police officers, we view Needham as a unique, diverse community that many people call home. Officers strive to provide an exceptional level of service to the members of the community. You may not be aware that the current Public Safety facilities are not up to the level of quality that a community like Needham requires, and deserves. The current Police Station originally opened in 1931. In 1950, the Police Department consisted of 25 officers and handled 1,774 calls for service. By 2015, the Police Department had grown to 49 officers and handled 31,610 calls for service. But the facilities in which we operate have not kept up with this substantial growth. The members of the Needham Police Union would greatly appreciate your support at the polls on November 6th. A “Yes” vote on Question 4 for the new Public Safety buildings will ensure that we can continue providing you with the highest level of service!
On behalf of the Needham Police Union, we appreciate your generous donations and your continued support. Thank you!
