I want to take this opportunity to thank the residents of Rockville Centre for the support they have shown to Officer Anthony Federico. For the last eighteen months he has lived under a dark cloud brought about by the unwarranted prosecution by the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office. He has had to live under this cloud of suspicion every day. The residents have been so supportive of Officer Federico and the entire department during this tough time. Whether displaying signs on your property, lending financial assistance or merely giving kind words of support; your acts have been appreciated by all the members of the department but particularly by Officer Federico and myself. Anthony has told me on numerous occasions that he was grateful for the support of the residents. Thank you all and thank God for the successful outcome.
– Commissioner Gennario
