Aston Police Chief Dan Ruggieri, during the Nov. 18 meeting of the Aston Board of Commissioners, presented a plaque of appreciation to the Aston Lioness Club.

The Lioness Club recently presented the Aston Police with a check in the amount of $900, which will be used for the purchase of a new bullet proof vest.

“I am deeply touched by this act of generosity from the Lioness Club,” Ruggieri said. “I know first hand how hard these ladies work to raise funds for their organization and for our community. I take great comfort in knowing that our police department is supported by such a fine organization and that these ladies have genuine concern for our officers.”

Ruggieri continued by stating that bullet proof vests are lifesavers.

“Just ask Ridley Park officer Mark Hanly who was saved by a bullet proof vest on Aug. 30 when he was shot in the chest by a suicidal subject,” Ruggieri said. “In closing I’d like to express my sincere appreciation to the Aston Lioness Club for their generous donation.”
