WHEREAS, Based on the evidence obtained during the course of the

community he so faithfully and courageously serves; and

gator Jason J. Pelkey, who unselfishly devote their lives to the preser-
vation of order and the protection of others are worthy of the full
praise of this Legislative Body and the people of the State of New York;
