Dear Members and Supporters of the San Pedro Business Association,
It has been 5 months since we solicited funds for continued support of our 6 BDF and 4 anti gang/drug officers at our San Pablo Barracks. At the beginning of April we exhausted this pool of funds and we are now seeking your continued financial support.
Now into its second year, the project continues to be a success and we are now also providing a base and housing for our resident Coast Guard crew.
Due to the steady increase in unemployment and crime on the island, we need these 10 extra officers more than ever to assist in protecting the island residents and visitors. We have recently lost nearly 1/3 of the San Pedro Police Department’s regular force to leave, ‘incidents’ and training courses so it is critical that we ensure that our project continues through this upcoming slow season. The Police Department has promised us some replacement officers but it could be months before the processing is completed and reinforcements arrive.
Please continue to support this worthwhile project by emailing your pledge to email@example.com. Pledges from individuals and businesses in the range of $200 to $1000 carried us through the last 5 months and hopefully we can all do the same again. Payments can be made at the office of Sunrise Realty across from the Town Hall. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone you know who would be willing to contribute.
If anyone has any comments, questions or suggestions please feel free to pass them on to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support!
