Fall Fundraisers
To Members of the YPD, 

Several YPD officers have organized two fundraisers that directly support New Haven families and disabled athletes.  I hope you will volunteer with or help support these worthy efforts:

  • Officers from the YPD will be participating in the annual Tip-A-Cop fundraiser at:
    • Wood-n-Tap, 2100 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden  
    • Wednesday, November 2, Noon - 9 p.m.    
The officers will wait tables for tips that evening. All tips received will go to support Special Olympics athletes in their year-round sports training and competitions.

The  YPD hopes to raise enough money to buy 200 turkeys for local families.
All cash donations can be dropped off at Yale Police Dispatch, 101 Ashmun Street by November 14th. Consider donating up to $25 (buys 1, 20 lbs. turkey).
For more information on how you can help, email Officer Martin Parker at martin.parker@yale.edu.

Thanks to all the officers who have volunteered to help with these two great fundraisers!

Best regards,

Ronnell Higgins, Director of Public Safety and
Chief  of Yale University Police
