Police Officer Russo found not guilty on all charges
On behalf of Officer Joseph Russo and family and the Members of the Mount Vernon Police Association, we wish to give our deepest thanks to all the Police Officers and Members of the community that have supported Joe during his time of need.
On March 14, 2014, a jury of his peers found Officer Russo not guilty of all charges in relation to a complaint about an alleged overtime slip irregularity. That irregularity ended up in criminal court unnecessarily. We are happy and relieved that the jury came to the proper verdict and hope that Joseph can move on from this miscarriage of justice.
We might all wear different patches, but we are all family and will continue to support one another when the need arises. On behalf of Joseph and his family, I want to thank you for your continued support, it is much appreciated.
Gregory Addison, President
