Community supports Sidney PD with new shed

first_imgThanks to the community, the Sidney Police Department now have their very own shed to store all the training accessories they have. The motorcycle group made up of veterans and law enforcement officers donated more than $1,000 to the project. The maker of the shed was also local, offering a discount on the shed to show support. “Our whole goal is to support the community, support law enforcement, to support veterans, and this was right up our alley,” said Fred Deutcsh, president of the motorcycle club. “It was an honor to help them, I would do it again,” said Insinga. “It was a great way to get our community together, and really back our blue, that’s important.” “We had to lug this equipment back and forth every time we wanted to use the range,” said Sidney Police Chief Eric Oliver. “It really showed us that the community we work for is worth the time we put into it,” said Oliver. When Delaware Valley Humane Society Shelter Director Erin Insinga learned of the department’s problem, she says she wanted to help immediately. SIDNEY (WBNG) — The Sidney community is rallying behind their police department with a token of appreciation. The Sidney Police Department’s firing range sits a little more than one mile away from the station. “We’ve had a long standing relationship with Sidney PD, professionally and personally. I consider them to all be friends of mine,” said Insinga. To fund raise, she turned to the community for help, selling t-shirts at $20 each. Then, more members of the community began to step up, like the Nam Knights Southern Tier Chapter. last_img read more
