Join Central Ohio Crime Stoppers, local clergy, and public officials as we offer prayer for the safety and protection of our local law enforcement and firefighters in this New Year at our 11th annual “Bless the Badge” ceremony. We will also be honoring Columbus Police Sergeants David Gitlitz and Joe Ritch, and Columbus Police Officers Aaron Napoli, C.J. Barnett, James Walker, and Sean Blood as our January Officers of the month. These officers were involved in the safe return of the child who had been left in the back seat of a car that was stolen, which took place 12/16/19.
The event will take place on Friday, January 10, 2020, 10:00am, at the Firefighters Union Hall, 379 West Broad Street. A reception is to follow.
