   The Rockland County Shields Scholarship Application can be found in this newsletter to allow ample time for the May 1, 2018 deadline. If you have a child who will be applying, please ensure they have all the required documentation enclosed with their application, and that it submitted in a timely fashion. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. We would love to have a previous recipient speak at this year’s dinner. Please email if you have a child who was a previous scholarship recipient and could “pay it forward” by speaking to this year’s recipients.

Tour de Force - On September 7, 2018 the Tour de Force will be in Rockland. The Tour de Force's mission is to honor the victims of 9/11 by keeping their memory alive through cycling events and to raise funds to benefit the families of law enforcement officers nationwide who were killed in the line of duty. Participants are members of the Rockland County Shields, active and retired Police, Military, Veterans, and First Responders from over 46 US States and 5 foreign countries. This year riders will start from West Point Military Academy and finish at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. All of this in four incredible days, spent honoring the ultimate sacrifices of police officers and preserving the memory of those lost on 9/11. If you would like to donate or support the ride please contact Dennis Dodrill at (845)216-1478 or        E-mail:
