Community effort helps preserve memory of fallen Greenland police chief
Sodini — who serves as a firefighter in town, works as a paraprofessional at Greenland Central School and serves as class advisor to eighth-grade students — said it’s important to remember the life of Maloney, who was fatally shot while assisting members of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force search of a home in town on April 12, 2012.
“We’ve been doing fundraisers for numerous years to help offset costs for the eighth-grade trip to New York City,” Sodini said, adding students participate in a number of events to raise $310 each for the trip In 2012, the class decided to donate $500 to the Maloney family following the death. The following year the school provided $750 to help pay to send local police officers to Washington, D.C., to visit the national police memorial, according to Sodini.
“As long as I’m here, I’m going to try and keep his memory alive,” Sodini said.
