17 year veteran Tarpon Springs Police Officer, 5 years previous, NYPD Officer, Charles Kondek was murdered on duty just days before Christmas. He leaves behind a wife and six kids.
(Please forgive the misinformation earlier and what may show in the campaign title. Teresa has 6 children)
Funds will be given to his wife, by check, either directly or through the Department bank memorial account. There are two and they accept checks. What we offer is a faster, simpler, easier way for you to support the fund.
The final check will be accompanied by a letter with information as how to view the comments left in Officer Kondek's honor, if Mrs. Kondek has not seen them already.
It is not conceivable to contact the family at a time like this. We have, however, contacted Tarpon Springs PD and the Pinellas Co. Sheriff's office. We, at OfficerDown.US have a history and are credible. We are 501c3 and all donations will receive a receipt with the IRS information. We raise funds from LEO supporters and give a check to the family at the close of the campaign.
