Westchester police departments send officers, trucks of supplies to Katrina victims
Four separate police departments in Westchester are pooling their resources and their officers together to go down South to help hurricane victims.
Harrison, Port Chester, Dobbs Ferry and North Castle are responding to a letter they received from the St. Charles Parish sheriff's office down in Louisiana asking for help from the law enforcement community. Within 12 hours, the departments arranged to send a total of 15 officers and more than three trucks full of supplies.
The officers have also coordinated with law enforcement in the Gulf Coast to facilitate their efforts. All the police chiefs say the officers will also help to boost the moral of fellow officers struggling down south.
