2017 MAP National Law Enforcement Memorial Trip Announcement

PLEASE POST AND ALERT YOUR MEMBERS

April 5th, 2017

This year, the annual MAP sponsored trip to Washington DC for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial will be May 12th through the 15th, 2016. MAP is again helping to defray the cost of the hotel accommodations for our members as approved by the board at its March 28th meeting.

Any MAP Member who is interested in attending this year’s memorial events MUST provide a $100.00 deposit no later than May 5th, 2017 to MAP Executive Director Paul Gaspar at the MAP Office. MAP has reserved hotel rooms for up to 16 people and member availability is on a first come, first served basis. The MAP subsidy covers a portion of the cost of the hotel and any costs above the subsidy for the hotel rooms will be spread out among the members attending. In the event that we have a large number of members interested in the trip, additional rooms may be purchased – if available. This will possibly result in a higher per member cost above the original per member reservation fee of $100.00 as hotel rooms generally run $300.00 - $400.00 per night. Depending on how many people go there may be an additional per member cost to cover the remaining balance of the hotel rooms not covered by the MAP subsidy.

The subsidy does not cover airfare, meals or local transportation and it is suggested that members use online services such as Expedia to find flights. It is suggested to book far in advance to ensure your own travel.

We are expecting a higher than normal interest in this year’s trip, so please plan your interest accordingly. After May 5th, if there are still spaces available, those vacancies will be opened to MAP retiree members first, and then to any interested individual outside of MAP. PLEASE ONLY TAKE A SPACE IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO GOING. IF YOUR RESERVATION FEE IS NOT RECEIVED BY THE MAY 5th DEADLINE, YOU WILL FORFEIT YOUR SPACE; NO EXCEPTIONS.

Bear in mind, the purpose of MAP sponsoring this trip is to honor and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending the Thin Blue Line. All participants utilizing MAP’s subsidy will be expected to attend the Candlelight Vigil/Group Photo held during our stay in DC during memorial week. There are many opportunities to socialize, but don't forget the reason for this trip. Those who do not attend the candlelight vigil will be asked to reimburse MAP for their stay.

If you would like to know more about National Police Memorial Week, you can visit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund website at:

www.nleomf.com

Only those members that we have received deposits from by May 5th will be secured a space.

Deposits can be sent to (Include your name, MAP Department and Email-Checks should be made payable to: Maine Association of Police);

Special Announcement

In October, MAP was proud to celebrate its 40th anniversary of being Maine's Voice of Law Enforcement. What started in 1975 as a small committed group of officers wanting a better voice in their working conditions as well as a fraternal concern for other officers, has become the state's largest police association, representing over 975 police officers and dispatchers from Houlton to Eliot. In those 40 years, MAP has held to its traditions of being a “By cop, for cop” organization and representing our member units on a one on one, exclusive basis. There are few other organizations anywhere that provides the level of service and contact that MAP has been proud to maintain for the last 40 years.

Thank you to our founders and members past and present who have made MAP the organization it is today. Stay safe!
