Earlier this afternoon, hundreds of law enforcement professionals and other public safety personnel gathered at Saint Anthony of Padua Church to pay their respects to Trooper Tamar Bucci. The Association and its members would like to extend our humble gratitude to all who came out in support. A special thank you to the several State Police Agencies from across the country that were in attendance and the numerous local departments.
Additionally, the Association recognizes the support of Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito and Attorney General Maura Healey. From the Senate we would like to recognize Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr and Senator Lydia Edwards. From the House of Representatives we would like to recognize Chair Michael Day, Chair Tom Walsh, Vice Chair Richard M. Haggerty, Vice Chair Paul Tucker, Representative Jessica Giannino, Representative Jeff Turco, Representative Donald H. Wong and Representative Steve Xiarhos who were all in attendance. We would also like to recognize the North East Regional Troopers Coalition and the National Troopers Coalition.
The support shown today reminds us of the bond among our brothers and sisters in law enforcement. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Bucci family, our members, including her classmates in the 85th RTT, and all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. Tonight we remember Trooper Bucci for her passion to serve and her ultimate sacrifice to our Commonwealth as an unwavering symbol of bravery.
