Today the Harrison Police Department held their Annual Open House. This event is part of the “It’s Great to Live in Harrison” weekend. Hundreds of people visited the Police Headquarters on North Street. There was food and beverages available as well as various demonstrations by the Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Service.
It was a great pleasure to see so many young families at the Open House. Many young children with their parents and grandparents filled the facility and its grounds. This is important so that from an early age the citizens of our community come to realize that the police officers who patrol our neighborhoods are here to help us, they are our friends. So often people have the idea that it is the other way around but it is not.
I offer congratulations to our Police Chief Anthony Marraccini and the entire Harrison Police Department on a job well done today. As is always the case, you made our community proud again! We thank you for all you do each day to make our community such a safe and enjoyable place to live.
I am personally honored to be associated with the Harrison Police Department and to serve as the Police Chaplain. This gives me the opportunity to know so many of our police officers and to pray for each one of them and their family members every day. I am happy to say what we already know so well – thanks to the leadership of Chief Marraccini and his capable staff, we have the finest police department anywhere in the country here in Harrison.
The Westchester County Police Department landed one of their helicopters on the property of the Police Headquarters and offered tours for those who attended the Open House.

Here I am with our Police Chief Anthony Marraccini. I am wearing my Police Chaplain jacket. It has my name, a cross and a police shield.
I was so happy to see our Mayor Ron Belmont. He is doing a great job leading our community.
