The Westchester County Board of Legislators will vote on the construction of a permanent memorial for Detective Christopher A. Ridley on Monday, July 16, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. This 23 year old Mount Vernon Police Officer was  shot and killed on January 25, 2008 by Westchester County Police Officers after being mistaken for a suspect in White Plains, New York.

The memorial for this fallen hero will be constructed at the County Office building at 85 Court Street where Detective Ridley was fatally shot. The meeting is on Monday, July 16, 2018 at 7:00 pm at 148 Martine Avenue, 8th Floor, White Plains. Please join us to show your support for Detective Ridley.

While he is getting treatment, his medical bills continue to grow at an astonishing rate. Because of this, the Mount Vernon Police Association, along with Westchester B.L.U.E Foundation will be co-sponsoring a ‘10-13’ fundraiser at J.C. Fogarty’s on Sunday, April 22nd at 1500 hours.
