A group in Dr. Mark Paoni’s Intro to Law and Justice class organized a service learning project through the Badge of Honor Association.  The group, consisting of members – Baylee Brooks, Autumn Miller, Brittany Profetta, Lea Shanley, and Madison Szczesniak,  raised awareness and money for the organization through selling their merchandise to local police agencies. The group had a goal of $500 and ended up raising more than $1,150. Way to go!

The Badge Of Honor Association is a Non-for-Profit Organization that exists to honor Men and Women in Law Enforcement who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who go above and beyond the call of duty.

The Badge of Honor Association focuses on supporting the families of Police Officers in the event of a line of duty death, and those officers involved in critical or serious incidents while on duty. They cover all law enforcement across 25 counties of Western and Central New York.
