GREENLAND — Police Sgt. Dawn Sawyer has been chosen as the new president for the Chief Michael Maloney Memorial Fund, with the goal of putting 100 percent of all funds raised toward community enrichment and supporting first responders.
"I'm excited to be involved in keeping Chief Maloney's memory alive while supporting local first responders, assisting students in their educational goals and supporting community projects," Sawyer said.
Tim Maloney, vice president of the board, said he is equally excited about Sawyer's promotion from secretary to presiding over his brother's memorial fund:
"We continue to value Dawn's experience, leadership and ability to take on an incredible amount of work and make something wonderful happen.
The fund was created after the police chief was killed during a drug raid in April 2012.
Since then, the charity has been dedicated to promoting charitable contributions for first responders and providing relief to families and children of New England public safety members who have been killed or injured in the line of duty.
