DRACUT -- The Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC) Police Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce that it raised $9,500 through its All Pro VIP Tailgate football ticket package drawing.

The winner -- William Finn (Ticket #011) -- received two tickets for every New England Patriots regular season home game this coming season, along with free parking in a private lot and access to All-Pro VIP tailgate events for each game.

The NEMLEC Foundation chose the winner during a drawing event on July 17 at Tavern in the Square in Burlington. 
Money raised through this event will go toward funding NEMLEC’s School Threat Assessment and Response System (STARS) training, comprehensive motorcycle training, elite NEMLEC SWAT training and annual basic and advanced crime scene classes, among others.

"We would like to offer our sincere gratitude to everyone who bought a ticket to support the NEMLEC Police Foundation's mission of providing quality opportunities to our member agencies," Executive Director Sharon Crowley said. "The money raised from this drawing and all NEMLEC Foundation fundraisers goes directly to support our member agency units and ongoing training for police officers in Middlesex and Essex County."

So far this year, the NEMLEC Foundation has raised nearly $40,000 for police training, special operations and charitable causes such as Cops For Kids With Cancer.

The NEMLEC Police Foundation, Inc. exists to promote and pursue training, education, research, projects, and programs that benefit municipal police agencies and their communities in Northeastern Massachusetts. The foundation promotes the public’s understanding of their police departments. It receives gifts, contributions, and grants from individual benefactors or private organizations and distributes those gifts to benefit The North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council and its cities and towns.
